Leicester City’s amazing Premier League title triumph comes just two years after Huddersfield Town played them in the Championship - and seven seasons after the sides clashed in League I.

The Foxes were celebrating becoming champions of the second tier when they won 2-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium in April 2014, the game in which Philip Billing made his Town debut.

Former Town forward Gary Taylor-Fletcher gave Leicester a first-half lead when he curled in a shot off the left-hand post.

Town’s Adam Hammill had an effort cleared off the line in front of a 16,481 crowd.

But Leicester had the better chances of a low-key game and sealed the points when Wes Morgan, who has skippered them to the Prem crown, tapped in a Matty James cross in the 75th minute.

Earlier in the season, Nigel Pearson’s side had beaten Town, bossed by Mark Robins , 2-1 in a clash which featured a goal from former Stocksbridge Park Steels and FC Halifax Town striker Jamie Vardy, who has scored 24 timed for the Foxes this season.

England striker Vardy, who has just been named Footballer of the Year, shot home in the 11th minute.

An own goal by Anthony Gerrard made it 2-0, but Town hit back with an own goal from Paul Konchesky.

Striker James Vaughan was red carded in the 83rd minute of a game seen by 22,297 for pushing Marcin Wasilewski.

Leicester were League I champions in 2008-09, when they did the double over Town.

They won 3-2 at the John Smith’s and 4-2 in the return, when Phil Jevons and Keigan Parker scored for Town, who had Gary Roberts sent off.

The Foxes’ title-winning squad includes former Town loan player Danny Drinkwater.

The midfielder later capped by England made 37 appearances in 2009-10, when he was with Manchester United.

He featured for Lee Clark’s side in both the League I play-off semi-finals against Millwall, who won 2-0 on aggregate.

Town had Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell on loan earlier this season.

The 19-year-old has made three starts for the Foxes, but none in the league.

Leicester’s first-ever top-flight title was confirmed when Tottenham Hotspur were held 2-2 at Chelsea on Monday.

Claudio Ranieri’s side started the campaign as 5,000-1 outsiders for the crown after almost being relegated last season.

But having lost only three times in the league they are seven points clear of Spurs with two games still to play,

Their success has been described as “the most unlikely triumph in the history of team sport”.
