West Brom 2-3 Leicester City - REPORT

West Brom, in special a special commemorative kit for former striker Jeff Astle, started much the brighter and went ahead when Darren Fletcher’s header from a corner crept just over the line.

Leicester reacted well and drew level when David Nugent took Leanardo’s Ulloa’s flick-on in his stride and then drove a low finish past Boaz Myhill.

West Brom regained the lead just six minutes later, as Brown Ideye flicked a cross back for Graig Gardner to send a deflected volley just beyond Kasper Schmeichel’s reach.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson sent his side out in a 3-4-3 formation in the second-half and they dominated from that point on, levelling through Robert Huth’s header 10 minutes from the end before Jamie Vardy’s dramatic decider in added time.

Winning possession on the halfway line, the former non-league striker charged into the West Brom penalty area before driving a low shot across Myhill and into the net.
