On This Day: Late Jeff Schlupp strike hands Foxes first win in 10

On this day in 2013, Jeffrey Schlupp's late volley earned Leicester City their first victory in 10 matches and place them back into the play-offs with a 3-2 win over Bolton Wanderers.

Former-Liverpool striker, David Ngog, put the visitors ahead on the Tuesday evening meeting from the penalty spot after two minutes.

However, Chris Wood tucked away a penalty of his own before Lloyd Dyer's left-footed strike turned the game around on its head.

Second-half drama

Late in the second-half, Darren Pratley equalised for Bolton when he fired in Sam Rickett's cross.

The winner came eight minutes later when Schlupp volleyed past Adam Bodgan to cause havoc in the King Power Stadium.

It was Schlupp's third goal in six games, having netting past Birmingham City the previous Friday.

Special recognition for this games goes to the unused substitutes for Leicester. Future England stars, Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane, were left on the bench.

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Keane, Koncheskey, Knockaert (Drinkwater 82), King, James, Dyer (Nugent 78), Schlupp (Whitbread 90), Wood. Unused subs: Logan, Vardy, Gallagher, Kane.
