Yes, Ndidi! Substitute's stunner proves crucial as Leicester get some FA Cup relief against Derby

The Foxes got the better of Steve McClaren’s Derby County to progress to the Fifth Round.

A GOAL IN the 94th minute from Wilfred Ndidi and a 114th minute Demarai Gray insurance marker were the difference for Leicester City as the Foxes got by Derby County in their fourth round FA Cup replay.

After a scoreless first half, Andy King opened the scoring for the Foxes on a headed finish in the 46th minute. But Derby would find the equalizer as an Abdoul Camara free-kick deflected in.

The game remained square through 90 minutes, but Ndidi, who came on to start the extra time, quickly put Leicester back on top in the extra time with a blast that went off the post and in.

Gray then put the game beyond reach 20 minutes later.
