Leicester City have secured Midlands bragging rights and top spot in the Premier League thanks a battling 1-0 win over Wolves.
Jamie Vardy’s first half penalty proved the difference on afternoon of limited chances at both ends with the Foxes boosting their Top Four chances on home soil.
Neither side created much in a tight opening at the King Power, with Leicester given a real helping hand with their opener.
Dennis Praet’s driven cross hit Matt Kilman on the hand inside the box and after a long VAR check, referee Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot.
Vardy has one of best penalty records in the Premier League and the former England man was never in danger as he confidently tucked past Rui Patricio.
But if Leicester’s first spot kick was a controversial one, Taylor awarded them a more straightforward one before the break as Rayan Alt-Nouri tripped James Justin.
However, Vardy’s consistent record was to be dented as his second attempt was a poor one and Patricio made a scrambling stop.
Leicester picked the momentum up after the break as Vardy tested Patricio with a fierce drive and James Maddison fired wide.
But despite struggling to make any inroads on Leicester, Wolves did almost nick a point late on.
Ruben Neves’ spectacular drive looked destine for the top corner but Kasper Schmeichel reacted brilliantly with cat like reflexes to make a game winning stop.
