Foxes' first win of 2017 amid fan protests over Ranieri sacking

The England global marauded down the left flank, reaching the by-line to pull back a cross to Christian Fuchs who unleashed a clean side-footed finish to leave the sides level at the break.

If Hull were ineffective in the first half, they certainly looked to turn the tide in the opening moments of the second.

Earlier there had been protests in the city by fans angry at Ranieri's departure, just nine months after masterminding the Foxes' Premier League title win. The challenge that we asked of them was to put back to back wins together. Fuchs played a neat one-two with Vardy, allowing the latter to break down the left wing before returning the ball to sender and Fuchs finished well from the penalty spot.

Disappointed coach Marco Silva rued the chances his strugglers missed, and added: "Now we have seen the other results we will just have to work harder".

China's Defense Budget to Rise 7 Percent
Meanwhile, White House spokesman Sean Spicer vowed in January that the USA would stand up to China in the South China Sea. It would mark a 10% rise than the previous year, if his budget plan is approved by the US Congress.

"The numbers are not good for us, that is clear".

Jamie Vardy will be looking to score in three consecutive Leicester appearances for the first time since May. "We need to take care of ourselves". "We have to prepare for the next game".

Wes Morgan headed wide from a Mahrez free-kick before two unsafe low crosses from Jamie Vardy into the six-yard box were expertly turned behind under considerable pressure by Harry Maguire and then Andrew Robertson.

Using superb technique and displaying a great deal of determination to score, Ndidi won the ball before a deft touch lifted the ball past a defender that was threatening his opportunity to attack the Club Brugge goal.

Flyers acquire F Filppula from Lightning for D Streit
In Streit, Tampa Bay acquires a 39-year-old veteran who has put up five goals and 21 points in 49 games this season. But Streit's contract ($5.25 million) is running out and Filppula's ($5 million) still has another year left.

The Austrian received the ball and side-footed a shot under Hull keeper Eldin Jakupovic, who should have done better.

Hull were denied by the woodwork shortly after the restart, Harry Maguire striking the post with an improvised effort off the bottom of his boot from Grosicki's corner.

Jakupovic kept out a tame effort from Mahrez just before the hour, but the Algeria global was merely finding his range. Yet the Foxes eventually earned their reward for another industious display, as Onyinye Ndidi flicked on a corner than bounced inadvertently off Tom Huddlestone and into the back of his own net.

The win means Leicester sit 15th in the table, 5 points off the relegation zone, with the vacant managerial position most likely going to Shakespeare, who's clearly driven the team back to old ways.

David Wright Is Injured Again, Will Likely Miss Opening Day
