The draw lifted them to seventh in the chasing pack, three points behind fifth-placed Sheffield United.

Wolves were then enraged a minute before the break when Boly glanced in Matt Doherty's knockdown - only for VAR to disallow the goal. The Portuguese played a short corner and when he collected the return pass, despite the ball being played backwards, the forward came from an offside position - however marginal.

The point kept Leicester third but they have won one of their last five top-flight games with 17-goal top scorer Jamie Vardy having netted just once in his last 11 games.
