Shortly after Taiwo Awoniyi struck a post for Forest, Maddison opened the scoring on 25 minutes after finding the back of the net from range via a deflection.

Two minutes later, Harvey Barnes doubled the Foxes' lead with a curled shot into the right corner.

Maddison then added his second of the night by whipping a superb free-kick in off a post, his 50th goal for the club.

Leicester added a fourth through substitute Patson Daka, who improvised to flick in from Maddison's low ball into the penalty area.

Brendan Rodgers' side now have four points and moved off the bottom and above Forest, who suffered a fifth consecutive defeat, on goal difference.
