No Vardy, no problem as Iheanacho's brace fires Leicester City past Peterborough United

The Nigeria international scored two first-half goals to lead the Foxes to the FA Cup Fifth Round

Kelechi Iheanacho scored his third and fourth goals of the season as Leicester City overcame the absence of Jamie Vardy to romp to a 5-1 away win over Peterborough United in Saturday’s FA Cup game.

Vardy was an unused substitute as Claude Puel’s men strolled past the English League One side at ABAX Stadium.

The former Manchester City forward got his first goal of the afternoon after firing a fine left-footed strike into the bottom-left corner three minutes after Fousseni Diabate’s opener.

He completed his double in the 29th minute by navigating in a volley from Christian Fuchs' sensational left-wing cross.

His compatriot Wilfred Ndidi completed the rout two minutes into stoppage time – his first of the season, rendering Andrew Hughes’ 58th-minute effort a mere consolation.
