Leicester 4-3 Macclesfield

Leicester 4-3 Macclesfield

Leicester   4 - 3   Macclesfield

Championship side Leicester edged a thriller with League Two's Macclesfield to reach round two of the Carling Cup.

Nat Brown's header gave the Silkmen the lead, but Robbie Neilson levelled on the rebound after Steve Howard's shot.

Matty Fryatt curled in a second before scoring one-on-one to make it 3-1, only for Vinny Mukendi to head in a reply.

Richie Wellens restored Leicester's two-goal lead from range, however, and even though Colin Daniel tapped in a consolation, the hosts held on.

Leicester City manager Paulo Sousa told BBC Radio Leicester: "We created a lot of chances and scored a lot of goals but in these types of games we have to be very focussed to not concede.

"The good thing is we won our first game at home and I'd like to think of that.

"We are working on a defensive organisation and I saw some good things today."
