West Brom 1-4 Leicester

Steve Howard grabbed a second-half hat-trick as Leicester came from behind to beat 10-man West Brom and climb out of the Championship drop zone.

Robert Koren's superb 25-yard shot put the Baggies ahead but the game turned when Luke Moore saw red on 35 minutes for a late foul on Richard Stearman.

Gareth McAuley headed Leicester level from a corner and Howard made it 2-1 from the spot.

Howard poked home a second and sealed his treble with a low 18-yard shot.

  • Leicester City manager Ian Holloway:

  • "We have to hold our hands up and say we haven't done well enough yet, but with seven games left I believe we will [survive].

    "We have to start building and I have got some good players here providing they are motivated like that.

    "We have to try and become consistent. This is just one game."

  • West Brom manager Tony Mowbray:

  • "Luke's sending-off did affect us.

    "We have just got to get on with things now and we won't look too deeply into it. We need to move on.

    "We got our noses in front and who knows what would have happened if it had stayed 11 v 11. I think it could have been different."
