Matty Fryatt struck twice as Leicester shook off last season's relegation with a confident 2-0 win over MK Dons.

In the 24th minute Fryatt latched on to Joe Mattock's through ball and was upended by Dons defender Sean O'Hanlon in the penalty box.

Fryatt stroked home his spot-kick with keeper Willy Gueret diving the wrong way.

The visitors' best chance of the game came in a rare break-away when Dean Lewington's free-kick fell to Aaron Wilbraham but Paul Henderson was alert to his angled drive.

Leicester wrapped up the game after 83 minutes when Max-Alain Gradel stole the ball from Jude Stirling before feeding Fryatt, who guided the ball home from 10 yards.
