Scunthorpe   0 - 3   Leicester

Scunthorpe v Leicester

Scunthorpe Utd 0-3 Leicester

A Miguel Vitor brace helped Championship play-off hopefuls Leicester overcome Scunthorpe.

The home side almost took an early lead but Joe Garner's header was cleared off the line by Richie Wellens.

Instead Vitor put the Foxes ahead when he stabbed Paul Gallagher's corner into the bottom left corner of the net.

The Portuguese defender added a second with a header from a Gallagher cross and Kyle Naughton finished it with a curled shot from a Gallagher free-kick.

Leicester's hopes of a top-six finish had been dented by a run of three defeats in four matches, but Sven-Goran Eriksson's side returned to winning ways in emphatic style.

Settling well on a poor pitch, the visitors came close to scoring when Gallagher's early cross from the left was hooked over the crossbar by Darius Vassell.

Scunthorpe, who have revitalised their survival bid with three wins in the last month, almost netted after 12 minutes through Garner but his effort was cleared off the line by Wellens.

Goalkeeper Josh Lillis was then called on to make a decent block from Ayegbeni Yakubu but the keeper was unable to deny the visitors on the half-hour as Vitor poked home from a Gallagher corner.

Scunthorpe were awarded a penalty after a push by Naughton on Garner after the break but the striker had been flagged offside and referee Rob Shoebridge reversed the decision.

The hosts then saw a goal chalked off in the 67th minute, with Garner booked for handling the ball over the line.

And Scunthorpe's challenge was all but ended in the 72nd minute when Vitor headed a right-wing cross from Gallagher in off the crossbar.

Four minutes later Naugthon completed the win when he curled in a precise shot from Gallagher's free-kick.
