Chipolopolo striker, Patson Daka, scored a brace, moving his tally to four goals in as many matches for Leicester City as the English side went six points clear at the top of the Championship.
Daka’s double helped his side to a three-nil victory over Rotherham proving the gulf in quality between the two sides.
The Foxes took full advantage of a 4-0 defeat for closest challengers Ipswich at Leeds in the lunchtime kick-off to stretch their lead and maintain their 13-point cushion in the automatic promotion race.
After being frustrated in the first half by the resilient Millers, Patson Daka fired home the opener in the 60th minute after Viktor Johansson had saved from Wesley Faes.
Soon after, Daka converted a penalty after the Zambian forward had been fouled by Johansson when clean through, and Cesare Casadei headed in Ricardo Pereira’s cross as Rotherham were condemned to deep relegation waters, nine points away from safety.
The win, which was Leicester’s fifth consecutive victory ensured that the side remain pacesetters and gave fans an early Christmas present.
