EPL: Leicester City beat Cardiff in first game since death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha

Leicester City marked an emotional day with a 1-0 win at Cardiff City on Sunday (NZ time) in the club's first match since the death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people in a helicopter crash.

The five were killed when the helicopter came down outside the King Power Stadium following their 1-1 match against West Ham United.

The players wore shirts with a picture of Vichai below the words 'the boss' on the front and 'Khun Vichai you will forever be in our hearts' on the back during their pre-match warm-up.

Players from both teams then observed a minute's silence to remember the victims before the match kicked off at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The decisive moment came 10 minutes into the second half when winger Demarai Gray steered home a neat volley with his left foot beyond goalkeeper Neil Etheridge after a precise low cross from Ben Chilwell.

After scoring, Gray removed his jersey to reveal an undershirt on which the words 'For Khun Vichai' were emblazoned as a tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha.

The Foxes move up to 10th in the table, and they will face Burnley in their next match at King Power Stadium.

Before that, Leicester manager Claude Puel said his players and staff would now travel to Bangkok to attend the funeral of Srivaddhanaprabha
