Vardy double gives Leicester win at West Brom

West Bromwich Albion v Leicester City

Striker scores two penalties after Timothy Castagne struck a debut opener in 3-0 win at The Hawthorns

A debut goal by Timothy Castagne and two Jamie Vardy penalties earned Leicester City a 3-0 win over promoted West Bromwich Albion.

Harvey Barnes was denied twice in quick succession by Sam Johnstone while Kasper Schmeichel saved from Matheus Pereira at the other end during a goalless first half.

Leicester took the lead in the 56th minute, with Belgian Dennis Praet crossing for compatriot Castagne to head in at the far post.

Vardy made it 2-0 on 74 minutes, scoring from the spot after he was fouled by Kyle Bartley.

He has now equalled Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in five successive away matches against the same opponent.

Last season's Golden Boot winner sealed the victory with a second penalty 10 minutes later, converting after Dara O'Shea had brought down James Justin.
