David Nugent scored his fourth goal of pre-season as Leicester earned a 2-0 friendly win over MK Dons on Monday.

The striker's deflected effort midway through the first half gave the Foxes a deserved lead at the interval.

The Premier League new boys, who handed starts to summer signings Ben Hamer and Marc Albrighton, continued to test League One Dons in the second period.

And they clinched the win when right-back James Pearson netted a superb 25-yard half-volley.
