Three Valuable Points
Great win for Leicester against the might of Wigan. Most people thought that this would be a tough game but the Blues shone through. Liam Moore scored his first goal for the club with a powerful header in the 15th minute. Liam said”I am a local lad and my dream was to play for City and then to score for City. I am so happy I have done that.
“I think I was about six or seven when Akinbiyi scored at home against Sunderland and ripped his shirt off.
“I thought I had better not copy that one because I had been booked three times this year. So he just kicked a hole in one of the advertising boards instead !!
Jean Beausejour gave City the chance to finally finish Wigan off by tripping Jamie Vardy in the box for a penalty. David Nugent stepped up the mark and placed the final nail in the Wigan coffin .
From the Spot
Lloyd Dyer’s superb pace twice troubled Wigan in the opening minutes of the second half and it needed a great tackle by Espinoza on Vardy to prevent him from converting a pass from Nugent. Bennet almost made it three with a looping header back to his Goalie who wasn’t quite ready for it, but it sadly just went wide of the post.
Pearson said of the game “It was a good match and a good performance by us”.
“Three more points in the bag nicely nestling in the play off spot ( I know it’s early season but we want to be there all season don’t we” ? )
