Three more points towards the Holy Grail.
Couldn’t have asked for a better start with Jamie Vardy putting them on the front foot in the ninth minute with a cool finish.
Danny Drinkwater doubled the lead at the start of the second half after smashing home on the rebound, while David Nugent put the seal on the win – and ensured the Addicks remain in the bottom three – when his low strike from just outside the area sailed past Charlton goalkeeper Ben Hamer.
Nugent and Vardy linked up well, for the Charlton keeper – Hamer – to close down Vardy’s shot. Then, a minute later and with only nine minutes played, Knockaert showed courage and strength to win a challenge in the centre circle, the ball rebounded to Nugent who charged forwards, drew the defender then passed to the unmarked Vardy, who checked, turned and put the ball between Hamer’s legs into the goal to take a one-nil lead.
City soon doubled their lead shortly after the break when Jeffrey Schlupp’s low cross found David Nugent in front of goal, and while his shot was excellently saved by Ben Hamer, the ball fell to Danny Drinkwater who struck sublimly into the back of the net.
Leicester then took further advantage with 25 minutes remaining when David Nugent picked up a pass from Jamie Vardy before heading for goal and blasting past Ben Hamer into the far corner of the net.
It was a blistering finish from The Nuge for his nineteenth of the season, and a well-deserved goal on top of a good performance for the 28-year old.
