Nugent’s first-half goal proves to be the match winner.
Leicester City went top of the Championship thanks to a slender 1-0 win over Middlesbrough.
One-time England international David Nugent scored the winning goal in the first period with a well-taken strike.
The hitman’s 14 goal of the season settled an entertaining game, which saw the home side hit the woodwork on three occasions.
Marvin Emnes spurned a glorious opportunity to equalise for Boro from the penalty spot in the final minute, after Rhys Williams was felled in the box, but Kasper Schmeichel saved brilliantly to his left to seal a vital win for the Foxes.
