Leicester have finished the job

David-NugentIt is all but a mathematical certainty now. Leicester travelled to Turf Moor in Saturday after some indifferent performances that saw them manage consecutive draws away at Blackburn and home to Yeovil in midweek. This would not have been noticed on Saturday,  however, as they put in one of their best team performances of the season to overcome Burnley. Most things weny in favour of Leicester as Burnley striker Sam Vokes picked up a self inflicted injury and had to be replaced. This along with the absence of injured star pair Danny Ings and Kieran Trippier made Leicester’s task more favourable. An injury to Jamie Vardy was a set back and it took a great finish from David Nugent and goal of the weekend from Chris Wood to secure the points. Leicester are now 6 points clear of Burnley, and QPR are a further 9 points back. With a game in hand over the chasing pack the Foxes need just 7 points from the 24 available to secure promotion. Leicester are 1/750 to gain promotion and 1/50 to claim the Championship title.
