Leicester City booked their spot in the fifth round of the FA Cup after beating Derby County 3-1 in extra time at King Power Stadium on Wednesday.

The Foxes broke the deadlock a minute into the second half when Andy King found the back of the net with his header to make it 1-0.

Their lead lasted only 15 minutes, and when Abdoul Camara’s free kick took a wicked deflection off the wall before beating Leicester goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler from 25 yards, matters were level again.

The match finished 1-1 after 90 minutes as both sides were forced to settle the match in extra time.

Wilfred Ndidi gave the Foxes the lead for the second time in the match as he drove forward with the ball and unleashed a thumping strike from range to find the back of the net, four minutes into the first half of extra time.

Demarai Gray then sealed the victory for the Foxes with his superb individual goal as they booked their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
