Soccer-Vardy sees red but Leicester ease to victory over Wolves

* Leicester City beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 at home

* Hosts led through Matt Doherty own goal after half an hour

* New signing James Maddison doubled lead before the break

* Jamie Vardy sent off in second half for high tackle on Doherty

* Leicester visit Southampton next, Wolves at home to Man City


Aug 18 (Reuters) - Leicester City had Jamie Vardy sent off but it did not stop them from recording a comfortable 2-0 home victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Foxes led at the half-hour mark through a Matt Doherty own goal, the defender heading in just as Wolves were on top at the King Power Stadium.

New signing James Maddison, who impressed in Leicester’s opening defeat by Manchester United, curled in his first Premier League goal on the stroke of halftime.

The hosts were reduced to 10 men when Vardy, making his first start of the season, was shown a straight red for a high tackle on Doherty but Wolves were unable to capitalise. (Reporting by Christian Radnedge, editing by Ed Osmond)
