Created on 27 Feb., 2013 12:41 AM GMT

Leicester City returned to winning ways after beating Blackburn Rovers 3-0 in the Championship on Tuesday.

Goals from Chris Wood, Harry Kane and Andy King sealed the result for Leicester, who had taken just one point from their past three outings.

Wood opened the scoring in the 30th minute, before Kane doubled the advantage 13 minutes later.

Blackburn fought desperately in search of a goal, but came further undone as King struck in the dying stages.

Leicester remain fifth on the table, five points behind second-placed Watford and automatic promotion to the English Premier League.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield Town climbed to 18th spot with their first win in five league games after accounting for Burnley 1-0.

James Vaughan's 56th-minute goal proved the difference as 12th-placed Burnley slumped to their sixth consecutive match without a win.

Elsewhere, Craig Dawson scored the decisive goal as Bolton Wanderers prevailed 1-0 against bottom-placed Peterborough United.

Bolton moved back into the top half of the table with the victory, while Peterborough remain four points adrift of league safety.
