Plymouth 1 – 0 Leicester

Mustapha Bundu’s superb strike midway through the first half was enough to secure a vital 1-0 victory for Championship strugglers Plymouth Argyle as leaders Leicester suffered another blow to their promotion hopes.

One point still separates the top three sides with Enzo Maresca’s side suffering a second straight away defeat in the space of four days having lost 1-0 at Millwall on Tuesday in similar circumstances.

Patson Daka, without a goal in nine games, was guilty of missing Leicester’s best chance shortly after the interval when he dragged wide from Abdul Fatawu’s cross before Julio Pleguezuelo was fortunate not to concede a penalty after tangling with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall inside the box.

Goalkeeper Michael Cooper came to Argyle’s rescue in second-half injury time as he rushed out to smother at the feet of substitute Jamie Vardy, but Plymouth held on to secure their first home win since January and three vital points in their bid for survival.

The result means Leicester remain top of the Championship table but having now played the same number of games as rivals Ipswich Town and Leeds United, who can both leapfrog the Foxes when they play over the weekend.
