Leicester City lead Wolves 1-0 at half time in tonight's Championship fixture at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City have a 1-0 half-time lead over Wolverhampton Wanderers in tonight's Championship encounter at the King Power Stadium.

Anthony Knockaert scored the goal midway through the half as the Foxes look to cut Cardiff City's lead at the top of the table down to seven points.

Knockaert came close to opening the scoring with just two minutes on the clock, but he could only fire wide after weaving through the Wolves defence.

The home side continued to press as Chris Wood lashed his shot narrowly over with a speculative long-range effort.

Leicester eventually made the breakthrough in the 23rd minute when Knockaert's shot squirmed past Carl Ikeme following Kasper Schmeichel's long punt upfield.

Wolves ended the half in the ascendancy, but they failed to threaten the Leicester goal.
