Kasper Schmeichel was Leicester's hero as Nigel Pearson's side went second in the table with a 1-0 victory over npower Championship promotion rivals Middlesbrough.

Leading through David Nugent's 70th-minute strike, Foxes substitute Jamie Vardy untidily brought Boro captain Rhys Williams down in the area, but Schmeichel plunged to his left to superbly thwart Marvin Emnes.

Leicester enjoyed the better of an open first half as Anthony Knockaert and Michael Keane tested the crossbar in front of a sparse King Power Stadium crowd, with many apparently persuaded to watch the televised clash from home on a snow-swept evening.
