  1. FULL-TIME

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    It's all over. Leicester's first Premier League win since New Year's Day.

    And Brendan Rodgers has a big smile on his face.

    Leicester players celebrate
  2. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Kelechi Iheanacho does get a touch as he flicks the ball on with his head.

  3. SUBSTITUTION

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Seconds left and Leicester make another sub. Kelechi Iheanacho is on for Jamie Vardy, who gets a standing ovation.

  4. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    The ref makes Martin Montoya leave the pitch and he immediately runs back on again. Football has some needlessly complicated rules.

  5. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Clash of heads from Martin Montoya and Jamie Vardy but they're both OK to see this game out.

  6. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Lewis Dunk is playing up front now for Brighton. Which means they're short at the back as Leicester counter, but Jamie Vardy ends up taking the ball to the corner.

  7. SUBSTITUTION

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Leicester bring on Shinji Okazaki, forever associated with that title win in my eyes, and off comes James Maddison.

  8. INJURY TIME

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    FIVE minutes added on. Hope for Brighton yet?

    Jamie Vardy
  9. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Leicester winger Harvey Barnes cuts inside and curls an effort to the far post which is blocked out for a corner.

  10. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    I wonder if Glenn Murray will blame these boots too. The ball drops to him 10 yards out as Leicester fail to clear a cross but he slams it into the side-netting.

  11. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Brighton have a free-kick, Jurgen Locadia just blams it against the ball, with Gaeten Bong shooting wide from the rebound.

  12. YELLOW CARD

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Yellow card for Leicester striker Jamie Vardy for catching Davy Propper. I say 'catching', it was a flying lunge.

  13. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    James Maddison passes from the free-kick and Harry Maguire fouls Lewis Dunk.

  14. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Free-kick to Leicester in dangerous territory as Shane Duffy brings down Harvey Barnes.

  15. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    I feel Brighton almost have a monopoly on £14m players that not many general football fans will be too familiar with. Bournemouth up there too.

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Anthony Knockaert is offside as he controls Dale Stephens' pass on his chest.

    Stephens is replaced now by Jose Izquierdo.

  17. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Harry Maguire gets the ball in the centre circle and the Leicester supporters encourage him on. Steady on now, Foxes fans.

  18. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Jonny Evans wins a header to Harvey Barnes, who controls the ball with a fine first touch before lashing his shot well over the bar.

    Harvey Barnes
  19. Post update

    Leicester 2-1 Brighton

    Harry Maguire goes on an unbelievable dribble from the halfway line, taking on four defenders, with a stepover in the box. WHAT IS HAPPENING??? He finds Harvey Barnes, whose shot is blocked.

    Standing ovation from the Leicester fans for that.
