Brighton - Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy scored late goals as Leicester dented Brighton's Premier League survival hopes with a 2-0 win on Saturday.

Iborra nodded the ball into the bottom right corner in the 83rd minute before Vardy tapped home the second in stoppage time.

Brighton striker Glenn Murray had seen a 77th-minute penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel, while Leicester ended the game with 10 men after Wilfred Ndidi was dismissed for a second yellow card with the score at 1-0.

Brighton remain just six points clear of danger with seven games remaining following the late drama.

Claude Puel's Leicester, meanwhile, boosted their chances of Europa League qualification by staying three points behind seventh-place Burnley.
