Leicester boss Sven-Goran Eriksson was pleased with the fightback to earn a point at Barnsley. The big-spending promotion favourites have won only two of their first six matches.
Eriksson said: "It's good to come back especially away from home. I think we are getting better, we didn't lose."
"It was good for King to score in the first minute of the second-half with his first touch.
"We didn't create many chances in the first half. We were more of a threat in the second-half because we changed the formation at half-time.
"Barnsley created some good chances late on in the second half and our keeper made a couple of good saves."
Barnsley counterpart Keith Hill was similarly encouraged by his team's display.
"I'm happy with the performance. I'm really encouraged by the progression we have made as a squad.
"The team's not going to change overnight but I am encouraged at the development of the squad.
"We came up with a game plan and it worked. We were expected to lose comfortably against Leicester.
"We should have had three points. Clean sheets win games and we should have kept a clean sheet.
"I am disappointed in the manner they scored. It was just a straight and direct ball."
