Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi, the talented Super Eagles duo, played major roles in guiding Leicester City to a resounding victory over Preston North End, solidifying their position at the top of the EFL Championship table.
The Nigerian internationals, Iheanacho and Ndidi, showcased their skills and teamwork, spearheading Leicester’s impressive performance against Preston. Under the guidance of Manager Enzo Maresca, both players have been instrumental for the Foxes throughout the season.
In a commanding display at the King Power Stadium, Leicester City secured a comprehensive 3-0 triumph over the Lilywhites, extending their lead at the top of the EFL Championship.
Preston’s resilient goalkeeper thwarted Leicester’s advances for the initial 60 minutes of the match. However, the home side eventually found the breakthrough in the 60th minute when Dewsbury-Hall capitalized on a deflected pass from Ndidi to score the opening goal.
Subsequently, substitute Iheanacho collaborated with Ndidi to net Leicester’s second goal, further strengthening their position. Dewsbury-Hall completed the rout in the closing moments of the game, seizing an opportunity from Iheanacho’s shot that was parried by Preston’s goalkeeper, Freddie Woodman.
Dewsbury-Hall’s exceptional performance was underscored as he provided the assist for Leicester’s third goal, which came in the dying minutes of the match.
Leicester City, under Enzo Maresca’s astute management, has been on an impressive winning streak in the league, notching up five consecutive victories. Their outstanding form has propelled them two points clear of second-placed Ipswich Town in the EFL Championship standings.
In their upcoming Championship fixture, the Foxes are set to face Stoke City, as they aim to extend their lead at the top of the league table.
Iheanacho and Ndidi, the standout performers in Leicester’s recent triumph, continue to be key figures in the club’s remarkable campaign this season. Their contributions have played a pivotal role in Leicester City’s quest for success, including a notable 4-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers earlier in the season.
Leicester City’s triumph against Preston North End was a crucial one, enabling them to regain the top spot in the league following Ipswich Town’s draw against Huddersfield Town. The Foxes have demonstrated their resilience and determination, rebounding from their previous EFL Cup defeat to Liverpool with a convincing display in the Championship.
