Vardy win­ner boosts Foxes sur­vival hopes

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - WORLD - Agen­cies

Jamie Vardy ex­tended his hot scor­ing streak to ease cham­pion Le­ices­ter’s Pre­mier League rel­e­ga­tion fears with a 1-0 win at West Bromwich.

With only a sec­ond away win, Le­ices­ter moved nine points clear of the bot­tom three with four matches re­main­ing.

Vardy struck in the 43rd minute for his eighth goal in 12 matches since Craig Shake­speare re­placed Clau­dio Ranieri as man­ager.


David Moyes’ Sun­der­land were rel­e­gated from the Pre­mier League after a 1-0 home de­feat against Bournemouth.

Al­lied to Hull City’s 0-0 draw at Southamp­ton, the re­sult left Sun­der­land 13 points adrift of safety with only 12 points to play for this sea­son.

Josh King scored the late goal that con­demned Sun­der­land to the Cham­pi­onship.

Southamp­ton had a chance to give Sun­der­land a stay of ex­e­cu­tion, but Du­san Tadic’s stop­page-time penalty was saved by Hull goal­keeper Eldin Jakupovic.
