Craig Shakespeare coy on Leicester vacancy

  • Foxes' first win of 2017 amid fan protests over Ranieri sacking

Riyad Mahrez scored his first league goal since November, a low 18-yard strike, before Tom Huddlestone headed into his own net to seal a deserved victory for Leicester and Shakespeare.

Leicester's key duo of Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy has struggled this season.

The 20-year-old is available for all competitions, and has added versatility and youth to the midfield at the King Power Stadium.

Mahrez scored his first goal from open play in the Premier League this season.

"The first start is getting back to back wins and Im confident with the squad we have we can pull away (from the relegation zone)".

"Yeah, the idea was that when we sat down on Wednesday, and I was asked to take the Hull game, was we'll sit down at some point next week and we'll have a conversation", Shakespeare said.

Shakespeare says he expects to speak with the Leicester hierarchy about his future next week. We were after the ball and we worked to get our shape back without the ball.

The rise in production is consistent with the substantial increase in the number of rigs drilling for oil since May 2016. The market is rather steady at the moment and we do not expect any firm trends next week.

With the game opening up in the final few minutes, Leicester substitute Demarai Gray came close to ensuring all three points as Jakupovic kept the speedster's effort out.

Regardless of whether they stay up, Hull will surely face a fight this summer to hold on to Harry Maguire, who was impressive at both ends of the pitch. The Hull City is the another worst team of this season which carries only 5 wins in their hand out of twenty-six play with the 6 draws and 15 losses. The Hull City had only one win in last five matches. "We need to think game by game, and right now we only think about Leicester on Saturday".

"They are a completely different team to two weeks ago", he said. But we started really well today, to go one-nil down in the manner we did, on a counter-attack, we bounced back from it, showed great character and great resilience.

The champions continued to breathe new life into their Premier League survival bid under the guidance of Craig Shakespeare as he strengthened his claims for the manager's job with victory against relegation rivals Hull. Fuchs played a neat one-two with Vardy, allowing the latter to break down the left wing before returning the ball to sender and Fuchs finished well from the penalty spot.

The Foxes haven't lost to Hull at King Power Stadium since March 2008.

"My position was made clear - I would be in charge for the Liverpool game and the Hull game".
