Match Round-Up:

A John Spicer goal five minutes before half time, gave Burnley the lead which could have been doubled when just before half time, Ade Akinbiyi was unlucky to have his goal disallowed.

Following a disgraceful challenge on Jon Harley, Ade Akinbiyi had numerous chances to score, the best shot leaving him denied by the post, following a goal being disallowed after Micah Hyde's shot hit the back of the net. Despite late Leicester pressure, the Clarets held on to take the 3 points that take them into the playoff zone.

Steve Cotterill's Post Match Comments:

"There was absolutely nothing wrong with Ade's goal as the defender got the wrong side and was out-muscled, the rest was history.

"We felt we had the best chances and could have wrapped the game up earlier.

"We talked to John Spicer about how he needs to be a better header of the ball and that looks pretty good to me."
