FA Cup: Leicester City suffered a shock fourth-round loss to Nottingham Forest

Leicester City were shocked to lose in the fourth round of the FA Cup to east Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest in a gripping contest at the City Ground.

Forest, who are currently ninth in the Championship, took the lead with a well-worked goal that had Keinan Davis heading down Brennan Johnson’s cross and Philip Zinckernagel putting the ball past Danny Ward.

Within 30 seconds, the hosts extended their lead, with Johnson scoring following a poor backpass by James Justin. The score was increased to 3-0 when returning captain Joe Worrall blasted home a back post header from James Garner’s corner.

English Premier League Leicester were granted a lifeline when home goalkeeper Brice Samba made a blunder, allowing Kelechi Iheanacho to slip the ball into an open net, but they were unable to respond.

Forest extended their lead to three goals when Djed Spence sprinted through and slotted the ball past Ward to set up a fifth-round home encounter against fellow Championship side Huddersfield Town.

Although there was an ugly incident following Forest’s second goal, the majority of the match was played in front of a fantastic atmosphere at a packed City Ground. A supporter stormed onto the pitch and attacked several players before being tackled and escorted away by security.
