FA Cup 4th Round Replay – Leicester City v Derby County

Extra Time needed before the Foxes go through

Leicester City have their first home success of 2017 but needed extra time to defeat Championship Derby County. After a poor first half Andy King headed the home side ahead within a minute of the second half after an excellent cross from Demari Gray was headed back across goal by Gary Albrighton for King to score. Derby equalised from a deflected free kick credited to Abdoul Camara as the initial strike was on target. The game began to open up but neither side could find a winner in the 90 minutes. Leicester went up a gear in the additional half an hour, a long range strike from Wilfred Ndidi put the Foxes back in front and Gray capped an excellent performance with a fine individual effort to seal the contest. Leicester will face Millwall in Round 5. Derby can now concentrate in their race for a play off place.

Blackpool and Crawley Town played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw befitting both sides mid table with little to play for status. Blackpool had the best chance as Neil Danns put a penalty well wide. Jordan Roberts and Jimmy Smith had chances for Crawley but a no score draw was overall about what the game deserved. Blackpool remain in 14th place and have now not found a victory in six league games.

In Saturday’s draw there was little between the sides but the extra division class showed this time. Jake Kirby rounded the Chelmsford keeper to give Rovers the lead, Mark Haines put through his own net to make it 2-0 and Ritchie Sutton added a third with a header before the break. Eliott Buchanan gave the home side hope pulling one back in the second half but Kirby got his second to seal the victory late in to complete a 4-1 win and a comfortable passage into the last 8.
