Yeovil 0-2 Leicester

Steve Howard
Experienced campaigner Howard kept Leicester's promotion push on course

Second-half strikes from Steve Howard and Joe Mattock sealed victory for Leicester at Yeovil to send them seven points clear at the top of League One.

Howard's 57th-minute shot from inside the box took a deflection off Yeovil's Nathan Smith before finding its way past goalkeeper Josh Wagenaar.

Sub Mattock made it safe two minutes from time as he cut inside and hit a low shot from the edge of the area.

It was his first senior goal, and just reward for Leicester's dominance.
