Foxes move up to seventh place in PL after 4-1 win at Huddersfield Town

Jamie Vardy scored twice as Leicester’s resurgence continued with a fourth successive win, easing past Huddersfield Town 4-1 at the John Smith's Stadium.

Leicester took the lead on 24 minutes through Youri Tielemans' right-footed shot, which looped over Ben Hamer.

Vardy doubled the Foxes’ lead three minutes into the second half, turning in Ricardo Pereira’s cross from the right.

Huddersfield Town quickly pulled a goal back through Aaron Mooy from the spot after Caglar Soyuncu had fouled Karlan Grant. 

But Leicester rallied, with James Maddison curling home a fine free-kick on 79 minutes and Vardy scoring from the spot with six minutes remaining for his seventh goal in his last six PL appearances.

Leicester move above Wolves on goal difference into seventh on 47 points. Huddersfield Town remain bottom on 14 points.
