Leeds secured their fourth win on their bounce courtesy of Matthew Kilgallon's second half strike in a 2-1 victory over 10-man Leicester.

The Foxes had made a fine start at Elland Road with Ryan Smith and Joey Gudjonsson testing Neil Sullivan from distance but Leeds began to take a firm grip of proceedings.

Eddie Lewis cracked the crossbar before David Healy shot Kevin Blackwell's side into a 41st minute lead after Robbie Blake had been fouled 25 yards from goal.

The former Burnley man touched the free kick to Healy who lashed home the set-piece.

The woodwork again came to the visitors' rescue, this time denying Whites striker Rob Hulse, before Leicester drew level from the spot midway through the second period.

Hulse committed a clumsy foul on Gudjonsson and the Icelandic international midfielder dusted himself down to convert the penalty.

Parity lasted just four minutes, however, after Blake teed up Kilgallon who found the back of the net from 12 yards to restore Leeds' advantage.

Frustration got the better of defender Patrick McCarthy who was dismissed a quarter of an hour from time for using foul and abusive language, an act which effectively put pay to The Foxes' hopes of claiming a draw.
