Leicester 0-0 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace can count themselves lucky to have earned a replay on 13 January after a drab draw at Leicester.

Steve Howard was a constant threat for the Foxes, who had won eight straight home league games before this FA Cup tie, but he failed to hit the target.

Paul Ifill was Palace's most dangerous player and drew a fine save from David Martin early in the second half.

Leandre Griffit also went close for the Eagles before Max Gradel almost stole victory for Leicester right at the end.

Martin, Gilbert, Hobbs, Tunchev, Mattock, Gradel, Andy King, Berner (Dickov 57), Davies, Dyer (Adams 73), Howard. Subs Not Used: Campbell, Morrison, Porter, Chambers, Powell.
