Result: Leicester City sweep aside Millwall

Jamie Vardy and Lloyd Dyer fire Leicester City to the top of the Championship with a win over Millwall.

Leicester City move to the top of the Championship table after comfortably beating Millwall at the King Power Stadium this afternoon.

The Foxes were in front after 12 minutes when Danny Drinkwater's cross was volleyed by Lloyd Dyer for his sixth goal of the season.

Millwall came close to an equaliser when defender Mark Beevers had space to shoot in the penalty area, but blazed his effort over the bar.

Jamie Vardy almost found a second when David Forde spilled Anthony Knockaert's effort, but the Millwall keeper managed to gather the ball.

He did score seven minutes after the interval when Kasper Schmeichel initiated a fast break out of defence, which caught the Lions defence cold as he beat Forde from the left side of the box.

Vardy put the result beyond doubt moments later when his right-footed shot from a tight angle found the bottom-left corner of the net.

The result means that Leicester move top of the table, while Millwall remain just above the relegation zone.
