Chris Taylor scored the only goal of the game in the second half and the Lions survived a determined assault from the visitors to hold on to all three points.

"We had to weather the storm and we defended very well," Jackett said. "But then we started to create chances of our own and eventually made it a dominant performance.

"The goal came at the right time and gave us something to hold onto, to see the game out.

"We showed some guts, we had to be at our very best against a Leicester side who have real quality across the board.

"We defended very well in injury time, there were balls flying in all over the place but my two centre-halves handled that very well.

"Danny Shittu has been a key player for us. He played a captain's role out there and was solid at the back all day.

"Darius Henderson is coming back soon and that will help us because we need to maintain our position and push forward to build on this great start."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
