Leicester’s Championship Triumph Ignited By Vardy’s Brace

Jamie Vardy’s brace propelled Leicester City to secure the Championship title in style, as the already-promoted Foxes dominated Preston North End.

The 37-year-old former England striker, renowned for his pivotal role in Leicester’s Premier League triumph and FA Cup success, further solidified his status as a club legend by notching a goal in each half, bringing his season tally to 20 across all competitions.

Kasey McAteer extended Leicester’s lead with a close-range header, underscoring their utter dominance on the field. This victory marks Leicester as the fourth club in as many years to make an immediate return to the Premier League as Championship titleholders following relegation, joining the ranks of Burnley, Fulham, and Norwich.

In their final fixture against Blackburn on Saturday, Leicester has the opportunity to equal a 104-year-old record for the most second-division wins, set by Tottenham in the 1919-20 season, with 32 victories. Notably, the 31 wins secured thus far already equal the club record, matching their achievement from a decade ago.

Furthermore, a triumph against Blackburn would establish Leicester as the first club to achieve promotion to the top flight twice while amassing 100 points or more.

Enzo Maresca, the Foxes’ manager appointed after their relegation from the Premier League, hailed their title-winning return as a “fantastic” accomplishment after a challenging campaign marked by intensity and difficulty.

Facing a resolute Preston side at Deepdale, Leicester encountered resistance in the first half as they sought to avoid having the Championship trophy presented on their opponent’s turf. However, Vardy broke the deadlock with a scrappy first-time finish before doubling the lead early in the second half, sending visiting fans into jubilant celebrations.

With 190 goals in 463 appearances for Leicester over 12 years, Vardy has been a talismanic figure for the club. As his contract approaches its conclusion in the summer, debates over the significance of his continued presence are likely to ensue in the coming weeks.

While Woodman’s agile save denied Vardy a memorable hat-trick, McAteer sealed the victory with his goal, capping off a remarkable season for Leicester City.
