Leicester extended their lead at the top of League One to five points with a comfortable 3-0 win over lowly Leyton Orient.
The Foxes took the lead after nine minutes when Matty Fryatt found Matt Oakley, who beat Glen Morris with an angled drive from 10 yards.
And Leicester doubled their lead after 36 minutes when Oakley crossed from the right and Steve Howard out-jumped Morris to set up Mark Davies, who headed home from five yards out.
The home side put the result beyond doubt in the 84th minute when they were awarded a penalty after Davies had been fouled by Orient defender Tamika Mkandawire.
Substitute Paul Dickov stepped up to score from the spot and seal three more points for Nigel Pearson's side.
