Leicester 4-0 Cheltenham

Leicester continued their march to automatic promotion by cruising to an emphatic win over Cheltenham.

Steve Howard rose above a static Robins defence to head City in front from a Tom Cleverley cross.

They doubled their advantage when Matty Fryatt capitalised on a Howard knock-down to fire in from 12 yards.

Cleverley went on a mazy run and then finished to make it three before playing in Matt Oakley who ran clear of a ragged away defence to add a fourth.

Cheltenham manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"The front two for Leicester were quality, a real dangerous pair and we never managed to deal with them.

"Having said that we had the best chance and should have gone 1-0 up but that's been the story on many occasions.

"For the first 20 minutes of the second half we had a real go but when those goals didn't come after that pressure, the longer it went on they looked more and more dangerous."
