Kightly scored his first goal for Leicester City in their 2-2 draw with Burnley on Saturday.

Kightly was one of Burnley's biggest signings and hasn't been starting as regularly as expected. With this solid performance, Kightly has likely secured a starting spot and could be a much needed source of goals for a struggling attack.
