FULL TIME: It's all over here and Burnley hold on for the win thanks to their brilliant start in the first half.
There will be four minutes of added time.
Booking: Iheanacho is the next into the book after a silly foul on Westwood. He doesn't need to be doing things like that, really.
Substitution: Schmeichel is making his way off the field now with Hamer making his way on for the final few minutes.
Substitution: Barnes comes off and is replaced by Sam Vokes.
A second booking, this time for Barnes, as he is penalised for a crunching foul on Schmeichel.
There is tension around the Turf Moor terraces now as Leicester continue to see the better of the ball as we head into the final ten minutes of the game.
Substitution: A first Burnley change as Wood makes way for Hendrick.
Chance! Nearly a second for Leicester but for Long's blocked. Diabate receives the ball down the left-flank and drills a low, hard cross through the box - intended for Vardy - but the stretching Long gets a slight touch on the shot.
GOAL! Vardy has the perfect reply and Leicester produce a superb break to get right back into the game. Iheanacho bursts through the middle of the park before sliding in Vardy through the middle of the area, and the striker smashes home past Pope.
Vardy is penalised for a foul on Long, although he is not best pleased about it and has some words for the referee before play continues.
NO PENALTY! Huge shouts for handball against Cork and Leicester want the penalty, but Martin Atkinson waves away the claims.
Booking: First yellow card of the afternoon as Lennon clatters in to Chilwell on the touchline.
Substitution: Another Leicester change as Gray is replaced by Diabate.
Some great play from Leicester in the last few minutes with Silva sliding Vardy in through the middle of the box and the striker attempts to sweep home. However, his contact isn't the best and Pope gets down low to make a fingertip save and push it around
Free kick to Leicester as Gray goes down - rather theatrically - after being caught by Lennon. It's in a decent range for the Foxes but they take it short. They could have made so much more from that.
Another brilliant effort from Gudmundsson as he collects the ball in the middle of the half before striding to the top of the box before striking. It's wide though.
A brilliant ball into the box from Gudmundsson after getting ahead of Simpson down the left flank, but the cross has just too much pace on it and Barnes cannot get onto the end of it.
Burnley win a free-kick which Gudmundsson stands over. He takes it short - intending to find Ward - but referee Martin Atkinson is in the way which sees Ward skew his shot from the top of the area although Burnley do win a corner from it.
HALF TIME: A great first half for Burnley, with Chris Wood and Kevin Long scoring in the first ten minutes to put the hosts in control of this game.
A better start to the second half from Leicester, although Burnley are still seeing the better of the attacking play as Lennon shows off some great skill to get a cross into the area but it whistles past Wood.
SECOND HALF: And we're back underway.
Substitution: The visitors have made a half-time change, bringing on Iheanacho for Okazaki.
Two minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
A cleared ball up the field from Ward picks out Barnes, who tries to get into the box down the left-hand side, but Choudhury tracks him well and takes two nips before the ball is taken from the striker and Leicester can clear.
Free kick to Burnley as Barnes is fouled by Morgan. It's just inside the Burnley half and they don't make too much from it, but there hasn't been much in the way of challenges and free kicks so far.
Save! A superb save from Pope to deny Mahrez! The Algerian looked certain to be finding the back of the net with a powerful header from Gray's cross. What a stop. Sensational.
Half an hour played and Leicester have offered very little by way of a response here. Burnley look very comfortable. Of course, this is football, so anything can happen but they will need a big half-time talk as it stands.
A superb break from Chilwell down the right flank as he skips past Lowton before lofting a pass to Vardy in the middle of the area. However, the striker cannot get his header on target
A good clearance from Lowton as Vardy makes a darting run down the right flank - his first real involvement in the game - but the Burnley defender clears behind for a corner.
Burnley just knocking the ball between themselves now and they are in control of this match as we speak. Absolutely no need for them to speed up proceedings and Leicester keep giving the ball away cheaply.
A bit of an awkward clearance for Schmeichel there as Lennon fizzes a cross into the area, which sees Morgan head the ball back towards the goalkeeper who needs a few controlling touches before he can boot it clear.
Leicester win their first corner, which Gray delivers into the box, but it doesn't beat the first defender. The Foxes win a second not long after and Mahrez tries to take it quickly, but it is a very poor effort as Lowton clears with ease.
A superb cross into the box from Lowton after a lay-off from Lennon down the right flank, but his ball destined for Wood at the back post is just about nodded wide by Simpson.
Chance! Mahrez bursts forward from the halfway line, making his way into the box before shooting. His effort takes a deflection off Long allows Pope to get his hands on the ball and he does well to keep the ball over the right side of the line for Burnley
Good news Leicester fans, Maguire is back on his feet and back on the field. His substitution would have only piled on the misery at this stage!
Not something Leicester will want to see as play is stopped so Maguire can receive some medical attention after colliding heads with his own captain, Morgan.
GOAL! Another! Kevin Long doubles Burnley's lead, heading in at the back post from Gudmundsson's looping corner. A great leap from Long and Burnley are cruising early on.
GOAL! Morgan gives the ball away cheaply near the box, which Barnes latches on to before picking out the run of Wood down. Wood's initial shot is well saved by Schmeichel but the New Zealand striker bangs in the rebound.
A decent start to the game here with Burnley seeing the better of the ball thus far but no real forays forward as yet.
