Newcastle clawed their way to a creditable 2-2 draw at Swansea, but the Tynesiders are still hunting their first league victory of the campaign.
Fletcher then wrestled back the lead for Gus Poyet’s men from a Jordi Gomez cross, before Wickham laid on his second.
Nikica Jelavic killed the game off in the closing stages, with Jake Livermore providing the assist.
Leicester hit back just a minute later though, with Mahrez heading home, only for Wallace to level again at the death.
