Leicester City survived a first half scare to secure a 3-1 FA Cup win at Championship high-flyers Brentford.

The Foxes find themselves through to the Fifth Round as Brendan Rodgers’ much changed team produced a spirited second half display.

It was the visitors that started the brighter in the opening stages with Cengiz Under and Ayoze Perez both wasting chances.

And it was that lack of cutting edge which was punished by the Bees as Mads Sorensen poked them in front.

And with Leicester unable to get a foothold in it before the break they were grateful to stand in keeper Danny Ward as the Welsh international produced save after save to keep them in the tie.

However, Rodgers’s half time message seemed to immediately do the trick after the restart as Under curled home James Maddison’s pass to equalise.

That strike tipped the momentum back for Leicester at the start of the second half as Youri Tielemans smacked home from the spot.

The impact of a quick fire double seemed to upset Brentford’s rhythm in the final half hour and Maddison was able to scramble home a deserved third late on.
