Leicester City 1 Charlton Athletic 2
Yann Kermorgant returned to haunt his former club as Charlton
won 2-1 at promotion hopefuls Leicester on Tuesday night.
The Frenchman, pictured, scored one and made the
78th-minute winner for substitute Danny Haynes that lifted Charlton
to 12th place in the Championship.
Kermorgant silenced the home fans' boos by opening the scoring
from Bradley Pritchard's cross on 19 minutes.
Chris Wood levelled on 69, but Kermorgant's flick found Haynes
whose dipping left-foot volley flew past Foxes keeper Kasper
Addicks boss Chris Powell, who saw his side lose 1-0 at Hull on
Saturday, was delighted with a first win in five games.
He said: "We lost a closely-fought game on Saturday so coming
here we were under no illusion that this was a really tough game
"But I felt the players applied themselves very well and Yann,
scoring when coming back to his former club, took his goal really
well. I thought he was exceptional on the night.
"Then there was a wonder goal to win it in the end from Danny
Haynes and we are very pleased to come away with three points."
