Foxes back on track, Terriers bite

Leicester got their challenge for promotion back on track with a 3-0 Championship win over Blackburn, while Huddersfield and Bolton also won.

Chris Wood headed his ninth goal in as many matches since joining the Foxes from West Brom at the start of the year before Harry Kane marked his home debut with a goal.

Leicester dominated the first half with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel a mere bystander, aside from a stunning save to keep out a Morten Gamst Pedersen volley with the game goalless, while a comparatively quiet second half ended with Andy King heading a third in stoppage time.

Mark Robins claimed his first victory as Huddersfield boss as James Vaughan's second-half winner gave the Terriers a 1-0 win at Burnley - their first at Turf Moor in 41 years.

The visitors, who moved six points clear of the relegation zone, had scored just once in the previous four league fixtures but Vaughan produced a predatory finish with their first real chance of note 10 minutes after the interval.

In contrast, the Clarets were profligate with their finishing, Danny Ings, Charlie Austin and Sam Vokes all wasteful as they failed to find the net for a third successive outing and extended their winless streak to six games.

Craig Dawson continued his fine start to life at the Reebok Stadium as Bolton dented the survival hopes of npower Championship basement boys Peterborough by claiming a 1-0 win.

Dougie Freedman's side are unbeaten in five games since Dawson arrived on loan from West Brom in the January transfer window.

The central defender scored twice in Saturday's 4-1 thrashing of Hull and grabbed the only goal with a firm header from Jay Spearing's fifth-minute corner.
