They came out stronger in the second half, finding an opening through Kelechi Iheanacho, who converted Kasey McAteer’s drilled cross.

The fourth round draw will take place on January 8th.

Leicester face Newcastle in a Carabao Cup quarter-final on Tuesday, and Iheanacho told BBC Sport that Saturday’s result will boost confidence.

“Obviously, this will give us momentum to go to the next cup competition,” said the Nigeria forward.

“We are playing Newcastle and it’s revenge for us as they beat us [3-0] in the Premier League, so it’s not going to be easy but fingers crossed, we will fight to our last breath to make sure we win.”
