AFC Bournemouth go into this weekend's encounter with Derby County searching for their first win in five games.
A preview of AFC Bournemouth match against Bolton Wanderers at the Goldsands Stadium on Saturday afternoon (3pm).
Nugent claimed his eighth goal of the season with a clinical finish in the 17th minute and Vardy struck in the 64th minute.
In between Marc Pugh scored a spectacular 38th-minute goal but Leicester were good value for their sixth successive home league win that lifted them to second in the table.
Bournemouth improved as the first half wore on and pulled a goal back in the 43rd minute.
Scotland Under-21 winger Ryan Fraser took a pass from Lewis Grabban and curled a right foot shot just inside the post.
Bournemouth stormed into the second half and scored three goals in nine action-packed minutes.
The comeback was complete moments later when Tokelo Rantie squared the ball to Harry Arter who smashed home from just outside the box.
Bournemouth were then awarded a penalty in the 59th minute when Dunne was given a second yellow card for a deliberate handball and the revival was complete with a fifth goal in time added on at the end.
Millwall went ahead after only six minutes when Martyn Waghorn slotted home his second goal of the season from Liam Trotter's defence-splitting pass.
Bournemouth were still reeling from that setback when they conceded another four minutes later when another big gap appeared in their defence.
This time it was Waghorn who was the provider, with a pass which Trotter neatly lifted over on-loan goalkeeper Stephen Henderson.
Millwall had three players booked in an eight-minute spell in the first half, Alan Dunne and Shaun Derry for fouls and former Bournemouth left-back Scott Malone for a transgression at a free-kick.
Bournemouth centre-half Steve Cook needed treatment after celebrating his team's fourth goal when it appeared a missile had been thrown at him by Millwall fans.
The offending object was handed to referee Lee Collins before play resumed, and a large police presence moved into the Millwall section of the Goldsands Stadium. For Millwall it was their second heavy defeat in the space of four days, after being beaten 4-0 at Birmingham.
Millwall appeared to be coasting at 2-0 before** **Bournemouth came back after the break with three goals of their own in nine minutes and the recorded their fifth win of the season.
Middlesbrough's Tony Mowbray watched his side fight back from the dead against Bournemouth at the Riverside Stadium only to squander their chances of victory.
Two Brett Pitman penalties gave the Cherries a 2-0 lead inside 12 minutes but Kei Kamara and Mustapha Carayol dragged Boro back level.
Grant Leadbitter gave the home side the lead in the 75th minute but a Jonathan Woodgate own goal sealed a point for the visitors seven minutes from time - and to add to Mowbray's woes Rhys Williams was sent off late for a foul on Wes Thomas
Ritchie Humphreys' first goal of the season was enough to maintain Chesterfield's four-point lead at the top of Sky Bet League Two with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Oxford.
Doncaster should not have been low in confidence following a run of pleasing Championship results, but, short of the lively Theo Robinson, they looked more like the side which lost to Leeds in the cup than the one which had bested Charlton, Wigan and Blackburn in a week.
Bournemouth took confidence from Doncaster's inactivity and continued to probe, with Ryan Fraser's run and shot ending up in Turnbull's arms before Pitman cracked the bar with a fine diving header from a Charlie Daniels cross.
That duo would combine to deadly effect on the half-hour with the striker ghosting into the box and helping Daniels' brilliant right-wing free-kick beyond Turnbull with the deftest of headers. After half-time Richie Wellens powered an 18-yard shot over for Doncaster with just over 30 minutes left.
Despite winning their two Sky Bet Championship home games, the Cherries had been woeful on the road prior to this game, conceding 11 goals across two dismal defeats.
But a more robust showing in more ways that one at the Keepmoat ensured a happy ride home for Eddie Howe and his men, even if the manager had to endure an attempted roughing-up from opposite number Paul Dickov along the way.
Pitman's goal was just reward for an industrious first half full of chances and, even though Bournemouth's fluency waned in the second 45 minutes, they had enough steel about them to repel the little Doncaster sent their way.
