Meanwhile, Ndidi kept his place in midfield. It was a bad start for the Foxes, as they fell behind after 20 minutes after a goal from Matt Grimes.
However, Leicester bounced back just before halftime courtesy of a strike from Jannik Vestergaard. Then, in the 63rd minute, Leicester City took the lead through Issahaku Fatawu.
Iheanacho was introduced into the game in the 83rd minute, and it took him just three minutes to make his impact felt as he scored in the 87th minute.

Leicester City saw out the result, and it ensured that they stayed at the summit of the Championship table.
Meanwhile, Iheanacho now has dive goals in the Championship this season.
