In the 73rd minute of this afternoon’s Premier League clash between West Brom and Leicester City, Jamie Vardy extended the Foxes’ lead for the penalty spot.
Centre-back Kyle Bartley pulled down talisman Vardy, leaving the referee with no choice but to award a spot-kick.
Vardy stepped up confidently and sent Sam Johnstone the wrong way with a lovely penalty tucked into the bottom corner, adding to the tireless forward’s excelled record against the West Midlands outfit.
