LCFC Radio summariser Gerry Taggart felt Leicester City were much improved in the second period during Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Burnley.

- Gerry Taggart believes Leicester City deserved to defeat Burnley following a tight encounter on Saturday
- Demarai Gray’s early effort proved to be the difference at King Power Stadium
- LCFC Radio will provide live coverage of Saturday’s Premier League trip to Newcastle United (5:30pm kick-off)

After the Foxes took the lead on six minutes through Demarai Gray, Burnley responded and tested the City defence, with Jóhann Berg Gudmundsson forcing Kasper Schmeichel into a stop at the front post.

Both sides traded blows after the break and while Gudmundsson was again denied, this time while one-on-one with the Denmark international, City held on to record a second Premier League triumph in five days.

Taggart told Matchday Live at the full-time whistle: “In the end, it was a hard-fought three points for Leicester City, there’s no doubt about that. In the first half, they were lacking a bit of tempo and endeavour, even though they took the lead.

Goals: Leicester City 1 Burnley 0

Watch Demarai Gray's goal that gave the Foxes all three points against Burnley...

“Definitely, in the second half, they showed a lot more of what they needed to and it was a different game of football.

“Burnley played their part in this game of football and in the end, they were unlucky not to get on the scoresheet themselves. Leicester probably should have scored two or maybe three.

“As we said before the game, it’ll be a tight game of football and it’ll be won by the odd goal – that was the way it played out. Claude Puel has to be happy with that performance in the end.”

As always, LCFC Radio will be live on air an hour before kick-off on Saturday (5:30pm), when Claude Puel’s men face Newcastle United at St. James Park.
