The Foxes leave their scent behind on the Tractor Boys !!
The Foxes came from behind to win at Portman Road, as David Nugent’s second-half brace followed David McGoldrick’s early opener.
Left winger Lloyd Dyer’s fiercely driven 51st-minute cross was neatly turned back into Nugent’s path by fellow striker Jamie Vardy and his clinically-struck shot left Ipswich keeper Dean Gerken helpless.
Lloyd Dyer then surged past Gerken before squaring the ball for Nugent to knock in his 10th of the season .
The striker netted after 51 and 57 minutes before his side rode their luck late on as Ipswich rallied.
Nugent has now claimed an incredible 13 goals in 12 games against the Tractor Boys, finding the net on all of his seven visits to Portman Road.
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson said: “We took the game to them after the break. It wasn’t anything I said, though. My hair isn’t long enough to need a hairdryer!”
