Chris Wood was on target yet again as Leicester City beat Blackburn Rovers 3-0 on Tuesday night.

The Foxes went fifth on the Championship table, keeping their automatic promotion hopes alive, with New Zealand international Wood opening the scoring at the King Power Stadium.

The 21-year old former West Bromwich Albion striker made it nine goals in nine outings since arriving at Leicester in January when he headed home Ben Marshall’s rightwing cross at the far post.

Tottenham loanee Harry Kane, on his Leicester home debut, added a second three minutes before half-time with a similar goal to Wood’s opener before Andy King wrapped up the contest in injury-time with another header from a Marshall cross, this time a corner, after Wood narrowly missed with a curling attempt.
