CITY SHOW SPIRIT TO SEE OFF SPURS

Spurs 1 City 2

Match Report by Colin Hall

A mishit volley by Jeff Schlupp deep into stoppage time gave Leicester City an unlikely victory at Premier League giants Tottenham in a FA Cup 4th round clash. The Foxes had trailed for much of the game, but a late Leonardo Ulloa strike brought them back on terms before Schlupp’s dramatic finale provoked ecstatic scenes among the 4000-strong visiting contingent.

Nigel Pearson rang the changes before the game, as Hamer, Wasilewski, Konchesky, Knockaert and Nugent were all demoted to the bench, with Schwarzer, Moore, De Laet, Ulloa and Kramaric brought in as replacements.

Meanwhile, the hosts, facing a demanding run of fixtures in four separate competitions made no fewer than nine changes to the side that started their previous fixture.

City started strongly and both Kramaric (making his first start in English football) and Schlupp were denied early on by fine saves from home keeper Vorm.

However, Spurs took the lead against the run of play after 19 minutes when Soldado fell to the ground after a challenge from Moore in the area. Referee Madley instantly pointed to the spot, from which Townsend duly despatched the penalty for his second goal in successive games.

The home side dominated possession for long spells during the rest of the opening half, but the City defence stood firm, despite Moore sustaining an injury during another clash with Soldado which led to him being replaced by Wasilewski.

As in previous games, the Foxes were being outnumbered and outmuscled in central midfield, but one moment of quality from Drinkwater almost brought about an equaliser.

His superb through ball sent Kramaric through on goal, only for the striker to be brought down by Vorm. To the fury of the visiting hordes, the referee - whose view of the incident was somewhat distant - judged no contact had taken place and booked Kramaric for diving.
