Fulham’s Ranieri denied win over former club Leicester

LONDON (AP) — Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri was denied a victory over the team he famously led to an improbable Premier League title in 2016 as Leicester recovered from a goal down to secure a 1-1 draw on Wednesday.

The London club was on course to move out of the relegation zone when Aboubakar Kamara gave the home team a 42nd-minute lead by shooting home from an acute angle after latching onto Aleksandr Mitrovic’s flick-on.

James Maddison grabbed Leicester’s equalizer in the 74th when he ran onto a pass from Shinji Okazaki to curl a first-time shot into the bottom left corner.

It meant Fulham stayed in last place, but now only on goal difference from Burnley and Southampton.

Ranieri has guided Fulham to a win, a draw and a loss in his three games since returning to the English game, approaching two years since his firing by Leicester the season after winning the title at odds of 5,000-1.
