Leicester City pulled a cathartic win out of the bag in the club’s first outing since the sad death of their late chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
Away at Cardiff, the Foxes’ sentimental afternoon began with the players warming up in t-shirts with Srivaddhanaprabha’s face on, then a mass unfurling of Thai flags as the players and staff observed and impeccable, mournful, teary-eyed minute’s silence.
The only goal of game came in the 55th minute, when Demarai Gray notched from inside the area and celebrated with an outpouring of pent-up emotion.
The winger also unveiled a t-shirt with “For Khun Vichai” written on the front, which earned him the most reluctant booking of Lee Probert’s refereeing career…
You can actually pinpoint the moment when Probert reads the shirt and realises that a begrudging booking will have to be administered.
Still, those are the rules, regardless of the circumstances.
Leicester held on to win 1-0, a result we were all kind of hoping and rooting for – bar Cardiff fans, naturally.
