Strikes from Chris Wood and Harry Kane give Leicester City a half-time lead over Blackburn Rovers at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City lead Blackburn Rovers at the break in their Championship clash thanks to goals from Chris Wood and Harry Kane.

The visitors almost took the lead against the run of play as Morten Gamst Pederson blasted a shot at goal but Kaspar Schmeichel managed to tip the ball over the bar.

Leicester should have gone ahead in the 27th minute but Michael Keane somehow missed from six yards out after he followed up on the ball after Wood's overhead kick was blocked on the line.

This miss wasn't costly as Nigel Pearson's side went ahead through Wood as he headed past Jake Kean after Ben Marshall had found the striker down the right.

The Foxes doubled their lead before half time as Kane found the net as he headed the ball home with Marshall again the provider.
