Graham Scott (Oxfordshire): Got most decisions right, although he could have given a free kick on Danny Williams in the first period. If he had, Harry Maguire would have been lucky to stay on the pitch.

A subdued atmosphere at the King Power Stadium, despite the home side taking the victory.

Not a great display from Town, with the game there for the taking after the goalless first period..
