  • There goes the full-time whistle, and it's a vital win for Leicester, they're on the verge of the Premier League, but in truth, so are Burnley. The only difference today was the gulf in class and strength in depth up front, with Barnes struggling up top on his own and Leicester able to replace class with class in Wood.

  • Bit of a clash between Schlupp and Wallace as the game draws to a close, but no bookings from Foy.

    90+3
  • The game understandably started to peter out now. 3 minutes of stoppage time to play.

    89
  • Final sub of the game as Dean Hammond replaces Mahrez.

    87
  • Mahrez bursts forward and takes advantage of the space, but his shot is deflected out for a corner.

    83
  • Last roll of the dice for Burnley as Keith Treacy comes on for Kightly.

    79
  • Knockaert launches the ball down field which Wood latches on to, and the striker dispatches a stunning effort over Heaton to make it 2-0.

    78
  • GOAL! Wood puts the game beyond doubt with a stunning effort!

    78
  • Kightly flashes in a powerful effort but Schmeichel is again equal to it.

    77
  • Off comes Nugent for Gary Taylor-Fletcher, and that's Leicester's second change.

    72
  • Mahrez finds Knockaert out wide on the left, but the Frenchman's effort flies over.

    69
  • Massive chance for Schlupp, who's initial cross rebounds back to him but his effort is blocked on the line by Shackell.

    67
  • Mahrez is dispossessed before Arfield looks for an over-the-top ball to Barnes, but there's just a little too much on it.

    66
  • Another worry for Burnley as they could run out of ice packs, Stanislas sitting on the bench with one now.

    64
  • It is indeed Stanislas who comes off for Wallace. That's Burnley's second change.

    62
  • Ross Wallace is preparing himself to come on on the touchline for Burnley. On for Stanislas perhaps?

    61
  • Lovely innovation from Wood opens up the space, but he can't keep his effort down.

    59
  • The game has settled down a little after Knockaert and Arfield's respective chances, with Leicester now in possession deep in Burnley's half.
