Leicester 3 Ipswich 0
DAVE NUGENT proved there is one certainty in football: he always scores against Ipswich. The one-cap England striker has now scored an incredible 14 times in 13 matches against the Tractor Boys – but his strike from Ritchie De Laet’s cross must be one the easiest goals of his career.
Jamie Vardy put the Foxes ahead after nineteen minutes with a cool finish from a tight angle, before David Nugent added a second just after the half-hour mark – his fourteenth goal in thirteen games against the Tractor Boys, and his 50th as a Leicester City player.
And Foxes fans only had to wait until the half-hour mark to see their side double their advantage when Ritchie De Laet played a pinpoint ball through to Jamie Vardy, whose return pass to the Belgian full-back provided a crossing opportunity, and while the first attempt was blocked, De Laet’s second ball into the box found David Nugent lurking at the back post who finished from close range.
With two minutes of normal time remaining, Chris Wood put the game out of sight after latching on to Matty James’ through ball before slotting the ball past Dean Gerken to make it 3-0.
