Leicester City 3-1 Norwich City


Leicester moved back to the top of the Championship on Easter Monday after coming from behind to beat play-off chasing Norwich 3-1.

Gabriel Sara put the Canaries in front inside 20 minutes after a clever corner routine – a carbon copy of the goal John Stones scored for Man City against Liverpool last month.

But Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall ended a run of six games without a goal involvement when he headed in to equalise and then provided the assist for Stephy Mavididi to win the game with some individual brilliance.

There was even time for Jamie Vardy to come off the bench to add a third in injury-time and atone for his four misses in the defeat to Bristol City on Good Friday.

The Foxes’ second win in their last seven games lifts them ahead of Ipswich and Leeds – who both play later on Monday, live on Sky Sports – for the time being. They do still boast a game in hand over both, however.

Norwich remain sixth, though Coventry, Preston and Hull below them have all played one game fewer.
