Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho was on target as Leicester city beat Blackburn 4-1 on Sunday to reclaim first place in the Championship.

The Foxes made it eight wins from nine league games under Enzo Maresca in the first ever match between two former Premier League winners in the second division.

Wout Faes gave the visitors an early lead, but Rovers’ top scorer Sammie Szmodics quickly equalised.

Jamie Vardy continued his run by scoring his fourth goal of the season just before halftime to restore Leicester’s lead.

They sealed the victory in the closing 10 minutes thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho’s penalty and Kieran Dewsbury-Hall’s deft finish.

Blackburn are now 18th after their fourth defeat in five games.
