Preston   2 - 1   Leicester

Chris Brown scored twice as Preston made it through to the third round of the Carling Cup with a hard-fought win over Championship rivals Leicester.

The visitors started well and claimed a deserved early lead when Nicky Adams side-footed into the top corner.

However, the lead lasted less than 10 minutes when Brown's drive deflected off Chris Powell and looped in.

The hosts settled thereafter, and got a deserved second half winner when Brown headed in Eddie Nolan's precision pass.


Leicester City manager told BBC Radio Leicester:

"We played some good football from time to time, there were some good performances out there but we have not done enough to win the game.

"Ultimately it's disappointing but we didn't do enough to go through. You have to take it on the chin.

"Nicky Adams played well, it was a great finish for the goal and the keeper made a fantastic save from him. He played pretty well."
