Kermorgant out-foxes former club
Yann Kermorgant silenced the jeers of the Leicester fans by firing Charlton to a 2-1 win - their first victory in the npower Championship this season.
The former Foxes frontman, booed when his name was read out before kick-off, doubled Charlton's lead after Bradley Wright-Phillips had fired the newly-promoted Addicks ahead with a low drive after a neat turn. Leicester fans still have nightmares about the last time they saw Kermorgant with the ball at his feet 12 yards out - his 'dinked' spot-kick went horribly wrong as they lost the 2010 play-off semi-final on penalties to Cardiff. But the French striker made no mistake this time when the ball fell to him in front of goal following a corner, confidently lashing it home before raising a finger to his lips in celebration. Substitute Andy King pulled one back in the second half with a neat finish inside the area but Leicester could not find an equaliser to make it a miserable 49th birthday for manager Nigel Pearson.
