Super Eagle striker Kelechi Iheanacho played a pivotal role as Leicester City FC stormed back to the top of the English Championship table, overcoming fellow promotion contenders, Preston FC, with a resounding 3-0 victory, MySportDab report.

Leicester City’s scintillating form continued as they secured their ninth win in ten English Championship matches, dethroning Ipswich, who had temporarily taken the top spot the previous day after defeating Hull City.

The encounter saw Leicester dictate the early proceedings, with Preston adopting a resilient defensive stance, poised to exploit opportunities on the counter.

Preston, hopeful from set-pieces, witnessed Jack Whatmough, part of the quartet of changes made following their 4-0 defeat to West Brom, direct his header wide of the mark during a rather uneventful first half.

Nigerian midfield maestro, Wilfred Ndidi, missed an early chance as he headed wide of Preston’s goal. Shortly thereafter, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall showcased his skill, delivering a curling effort that tested the reflexes of Preston’s custodian, Freddie Woodman.

The deadlock was finally broken in the 60th minute when Dewsbury-Hall capitalized on a defensive lapse to slot the ball past Preston’s goalkeeper, Woodman.

Leicester’s talisman, Kelechi Iheanacho, then took center stage, slotting home the second goal in the 67th minute, further solidifying Leicester City FC’s grip on the match.


Dewsbury-Hall sealed the deal with a brilliant strike, extending Leicester’s lead to 3-0 and capping off a triumphant evening for the Foxes.

With their emphatic win over Preston FC, Leicester City FC has regained their position at the summit of the English Championship, reaffirming their promotion aspirations as they continue their impressive run of form in the competition.
