Soccer returns to Leicester 2 weeks after team owner's death

Wood made 62 appearances for Leicester and scored 20 goals

It has been just two weeks since Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha passed away alongside four other people in a helicopter accident outside the King Power Stadium.

Khun Vichai was among five people killed when his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium on 27 October.

Under Vichai's ownership, Leicester won the Premier League in 2016, having started the season as 5,000-1 outsiders.

Maguire, who misses the Burnley game due to injury, joined thousands of Leicester fans in marching to the stadium as part of a series of planned tributes to Srivaddhanaprabha.

"Champions of England, you made us sing that", reverberated around the ground time and again as Aiyawatt, Vichai's son and the Leicester vice-chairman, looked on from the stands.

There was also applause in the 60th minute to mark Vichai's age when he died.

A number of players, including Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel, and manager Puel travelled to Thailand to attend Vichai's funeral.

Claude Puel's side shrugged off any fatigue with a dominant display against Burnley, but they couldn't find what would have been a fitting victor.

"We will manage the moment step by step but I feel in my players' focus and soul".

"The players compensated with desire".

"We are committed to honouring his memory and upholding his legacy. There is no doubt about that", added the 57-year-old.

Megan said: "I never thought it would end up this big". He played so well.

Rondon doubled Newcastle's advantage five minutes before half-time, heading in from Kenedy's cross.

The draw left Huddersfield in the relegation zone after 12 games.

Manolo Gabbiadini's first goal of the campaign gave Saints the lead in the 20th minute and Hooper's first contentious decision came when he denied Watford a penalty after Ryan Bertrand appeared to take out Nathaniel Chalobah.

"It's ridiculous. We scored a perfectly good goal that was ruled out".

Sol Bamba's last-gasp goal gave struggling Cardiff a 2-1 win over 10-man Brighton.

Srivaddhanaprabha was exiting the stadium after his club's 1-1 home draw with West Ham United when the incident took place.
