Maddison error gifts Bournemouth win to pile pressure on Leicester

Philip Billing capitalised on a James Maddison error to clinch a 1-0 win for Bournemouth over relegation rivals Leicester, piling the pressure on the managerless side.

News emerged before kick-off that Leicester are in advanced talks with Jesse Marsch over replacing Brendan Rodgers, but it was first-team coaches Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell in charge for what proved to be the Foxes' seventh defeat in eight league games.

Leicester, who are now two points from safety in 19th, showed spirit in the second half after the introduction of Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka but fell short and lost Harvey Barnes to injury to add to their woes.

Bournemouth climb to 15th in the table with their third win in five and create a three-point gap between themselves and the drop zone with eight games of the season to go. Leicester, meanwhile, face a trip to champions Manchester City in their next league game on April 15
