Leicester 2 Huddesfield 1

Leicester V Huddesfield
Well back to winning ways with a pretty drama filled afternoon. City were superb during the first half and could easily have scored four or more. But when the first goal came it was sublime, David Nugent broke clear from the halfway line and set up Vardy, who blasted home a screamer of a shot from the right side leaving Smithies with no chance.

James Vaughn an ex City Loanee from Everton caused a few problems and should have indeed scored but the agile skills of Schmeichel.
Nugent then had a great opportunity to double the lead but failed !! With Leicester ruling the roost, they increased their lead in the 38th minute. Anthony Knockaert with another superb in-swinging corner Captain Wes Morgan pressured Gerrard and he headed into his own net.
Leicester had a penalty appeal turned down in the second half with what looked like a defender turning into a rush goalie to save the shot with the Ref not seeming to be on the ball ( the same as he was all game to be fair ). Substitute Scannell ran through the defence after a hopeful ball over the top, before slipping the ball past Schmeichel for 2-1. Pearson responded by introducing Dean Hammond and James at the expense of Knockaert and King, in an effort to shore up the midfield and keep hold of the lead. With Knockaert not seeming to enjoy the fact and looking pretty peed off as he made his way from the pitch with a final gesture of kicking the seats before he sat down.
Then followed a controversial decision. Wasilewski seeming to use his elbow to gain advantage was followed by Vaughn going behind him and pushing Wasilewski to the turf. No mean feat with the size of the City defender. A Red card followed and Vaughn was sent to the dressing room.
City then managed to run the clock down and hang on to 3 well deserved points
