Leicester moved seven points clear at the top of League One after breaking down stubborn resistance from relegation-threatened Yeovil.
Already hit by suspensions, the Glovers lost midfielder Gary Roberts (10) with a suspected broken leg.
Steve Howard (57) broke the deadlock with a deflected drive before sub Joe Mattock (88), set up by debutant Tom Cleverley, made the points safe.
