Stoke boss Lambert won't blame Butland for Leicester draw

Stoke City and Leicester City played out a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

Jack Butland's own goal denied Stoke a crucial victory at Leicester as the Potters left with a 1-1 draw.

Xherdan Shaqiri's 44th-minute opener for the visitors, a fine long-range strike after an enterprising run, lit up an otherwise drab first half, and the visitors retained their lead until 20 minutes from time when Butland fumbled Marc Albrighton's cross into his own net.

Potter boss Paul Lambert said: “I thought we should have had two or three even before Leicester scored.

“Butland is the best goalkeeper in Britain, without a shadow of doubt. He will make mistakes, as all footballers do, but he's a top-class goalkeeper.

“He made a terrific save, the one to his right-hand side, arguably his best save."
