Burnley 3-0 Leicester

Burnley 3-0 Leicester

Burnley   3 - 0   Leicester

Burnley continued their impressive start to the Championship season with a comprehensive victory over Leicester.

Both sides pressed early on but Burnley were soon on top and Andre Bikey had a header disallowed before Ross Wallace's strike deflected in off Joao Moreno.

After the break, Chris Iwelumo nodded the 100th goal of his career from Wallace's hanging cross.

And Graham Alexander crowned the win with a penalty after Chris Eagles was brought down by Michael Lamey.

Having beaten much-fancied Nottingham Forest on the opening day of the season and drawn at Ipswich last time out, it was another impressive result for Burnley following last season's relegation from the Premier League.

But goalkeeper Brian Jensen had to come to their rescue in the opening minute when he beat away Danny N'Guessan's shot after the Foxes winger had tricked his way into the box.

Burnley thought they had gone ahead in the fifth minute, but Bikey's thumping header was chalked off by referee Geoff Eltringham, who ruled Clark Carlisle had pulled Moreno's shirt in the build-up.

Martin Paterson almost headed in for the hosts and Leicester's DJ Campbell fizzed a strike just over before Wallace claimed his first goal for the Clarets since his summer switch from Preston.

Leicester came out fighting after the break but Burnley had the better chances and, after Iwelumo failed to hit the target with a header from close range, the former Wolves forward nodded home his second goal in as many games.

Making his 900th club career start, Alexander then sealed the points with a side-footed finish from the spot.
