English Champions Leicester City almost crashed out of the Emirate FA Cup but Wes Morgan late goal helped them draw 2-2 against a Darrent Bent inspired Derby County.

The former England striker scored at both ends, firstly netting an own goal before cancelling it out with an equaliser for the Championship side to bring scores to 1-1.

Craig Bryson scored what most thought was the tie breaker in the 40th minute to take scores to 2-1, a score Leicester struggled to level despite the introduction of Riyad Mahrez and Ahmed Musa.

Mahrez was introduced for Shinji Okazaki in the 64th minute, while Musa came on for Marc Albrighton with 16 minutes left to play.

However it was another substitute Demarai Gray who proved to be an inspired introduction setting up Wes Morgan for the leveler in the 87th minute.

Leicester City hanged on to force a replay which will take place at the King Power Stadium, where Wilfred Ndidi who was an unused substitute in today’s tie could feature.
