Cardiff 0-1 Leicester

Nils-Eric Johansson's strike put Leicester into the fourth round of the Carling Cup against Cardiff.

Johansson got the faintest of touches on Gareth Williams' corner after 10 minutes to put the Foxes ahead and the lead was defended comfortably.

Leicester dominated and they enjoyed the better of the early exchanges in what was an open contest throughout

Cardiff barely threatened until Paul Parry's low drive from 25 yards somehow missed the target.

  • Cardiff boss Dave Jones:
    "Last week we could have had 10 yet tonight we couldn't even get one.

    "I am disappointed that we gave away a goal from a set piece but after that we changed it around a bit and they dug in and tried to catch us on the break.

    "We didn't put them under enough pressure and it was not our day."

  • Leicester boss Craig Levein:
    "For 85 minutes we were comfortable which is some feat in a difficult place like Cardiff.

    "In the last five minutes they threw everything at us and we have Paul Henderson to thank for three fantastic saves in the dying minutes.

    "Cardiff had only lost one of their last 12 matches so it's fantastic."
