|Dyer 12, Vardy 52, 55||Venue: King Power Stadium
MILLWALL were well-beaten by a Jamie Vardy-inspired Leicester City side who moved to the top of the Championship with a convincing win.
Vardy scored two goals in three second-half minutes to add to Lloyd Dyer's early opener and send the Lions crashing to a fourth away defeat in their last five outings.
Steve Lomas made two enforced changes to Millwall's starting line up, with Jimmy Abdou and Liam Feeney coming in for Nicky Bailey (suspended) and Martyn Waghorn (ineligible).
The home side scored on their first meaningful attack as Danny Drinkwater selflessly picked out the run of in-form Dyer, who swept in a first-time volley at the far post.
Goalkeeper David Forde then made three important saves in the space of eight minutes as the Foxes, buoyed by the early opener, looked to ram home their advantage.
First, the Republic of Ireland international made a flying stop to tip Anthony Knockaert's looping effort behind for a corner before holding onto the midfielder's header.
And moments later, goalscorer Dyer scampered clear down the left flank and drilled a low shot towards the near corner, but Forde got down well to keep it out.
The Leicester chances kept on coming as Millwall struggled to get out of their own half.
In the 29th minute, Knockaert's curling effort was held by Forde at the second attempt and David Nugent's shot was deflected behind for a corner shortly afterwards.
The Lions' best opportunity of the first half fell to Martyn Woolford, whose close-range shot following Liam Feeney's free kick was blocked a few yards from goal.
Foxes 'keeper Kasper Schmeichel, who had largely been a spectator up until that point, made his first save in the 41st minute when he caught Mark Beever's tame header.
But Leicester nearly added a second before the interval when Knockaert took aim 20 yards out and fizzed a low drive goalwards, only for Forde to make another excellent intervention.
The second half began in a similar fashion, with Vardy drilling into the side netting from a tight angle just 90 seconds after the restart.
Dyer's rising drive was tipped over by Forde in the 50th minute, but the Millwall stopper was finally beaten again when Vardy ran the length of the pitch and cooly slotted home.
And the one-time Lions target made it 3-0 when he nipped in to intercept Malone's misjudged header back to Forde and finished from a tight angle.
Nugent should have made it 4-0 on the hour mark but he failed to convert Vardy's pass.
Steve Morison, who had been brought on at half time, somehow headed fellow substitute Lee Martin's cross over from right underneath the bar, before then clattering into the post.
Paul Konchesky, Chris Wood and Matty James all wasted chances to add a fourth goal for Leicester in the closing stages.
