Leeds 2-1 Leicester
Matthew Kilgallon's second-half strike proved the winner against 10-man Leicester and handed Leeds their fourth successive Championship victory.

David Healy opened the scoring, rifling home from 25-yards on 41 minutes.

But Leicester took the chance to equalise after Rob Hulse upended Joey Gudjonsson, who then picked himself up to score the resultant penalty.

Kilgallon restored Leeds' advantage from 12 yards before Patrick McCarthy was dismissed for foul language.

  • Leeds coach John Carver:

    "I'm very surprised to see Leicester where they are in the league - they are certainly one of the sides who can be in the top six.

    "It was a good game. The first 20 minutes were the best I've seen for a long time, a spectacular advertisement for the Championship."

  • Leicester boss Craig Levein on Kilgallon's winning goal:

    "It was struck from outside the area and hit a player stood right in the middle of the six-yard box.

    "I don't understand how anyone can say he wasn't interfering with play. The linesman has made a big mistake.

    "I am not condoning what Paddy McCarthy did - it was wrong to go running to the linesman - but the goal changed the game and it took us down to 10 men."
