Jamie Vardy scores at the death as Leicester beat Sheffield

Jamie Vardy scored a  late winner as Leicester City beat Sheffield United 2-1 on Sunday evening. 

Ayoze Perez gave the Foxes the lead in the 24th minute, but it was quickly canceled out by Oliver McBurnie two minutes later. 

It was an even contest in the opening half, with both teams getting a few chances to take the lead. 

James Maddison came close to finding a second in the 42nd minute after expertly controlling a neat, clever pass inside the box, but his effort crashed against the right post. 

The second half largely belonged to Brendan Rodgers' men, but could not find the winner going into the last minutes.

With the match seemingly headed for a draw, Vardy stepped up to bury a beautiful effort into the far corner for the winner. 

He was however shown a  yellow card after breaking the corner flag as he celebrated his win.

The win saw the Foxes halt their rot,  which saw them lose two matches on the bounce. 

Sheffield, on the other hand, remained bottom of the table with one point from 11 matches and are early candidates for relegation.
