Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi was on target on Saturday as his club Leicester City defeated visiting West Brom 2-1 at the Kings Power Stadium in the English Championship.

Ndidi pounced on a rebound to score from close range in the 22nd minute to give Leicester City the breakthrough that led to their first win in three games and strengthened their charge for a quick return to the Premier League.

Leicester are now two more victories from their remaining three games to secure automatic promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Ndidi has taken his Championship tally this season to three goals and five assists in 29 appearances from midfield for Leicester City, who are now two points clear at the top of the table with three rounds of matches to the end of the campaign.

Ndidi’s fellow Nigeria international at Leicester City, Kelechi Iheanacho, was not in the matchday squad, apparently due to a knock.

Despite the defeat, West Brom are still in contention for a spot in the promotion play-offs.

They are fifth, seven points clear of seventh-placed Hull City, with the teams in third to sixth places due to battle for an additional promotion spot.
