Jamie Vardy’s double sealed the Championship title for Leicester City with one game to spare as the Foxes cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win over Preston.

Leicester’s No 9 got the party started with goals either side of half-time to send Enzo Maresca’s side on their way to a title-sealing victory, before Kasey McAteer put the cherry on the top with a third goal.

The full-time whistle brought jubilant scenes for Maresca, his staff and his players – who will receive the Championship trophy after Saturday’s final day encounter with Blackburn at the King Power Stadium, which will determine whether the Foxes reach the 100-point mark or not.

It also means the second tier has been won by a Pep Guardiola disciple for the second season in a row, with Maresca following Vincent Kompany’s Burnley in being Championship top dogs.
