Leeds 1-2 Leicester

Leeds United   1 - 2   Leicester

Leicester came from a goal down to beat Leeds and seal their place in the third round of the Carling Cup thanks to Steve Howard's last-minute penalty.

Davide Somma followed up his league-debut brace on Saturday by heading Leeds into the lead on the half hour.

Midway through the second half, Richie Wellens exchanged passes with Steve Howard and fired the visitors level.

Neil Collins's handball in the box in the final minute saw a penalty awarded, which Howard converted to win it.


Leeds boss Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Leeds:
"We did OK first half but as the game went on we became sloppy.

"It's frustrating because I wanted to build on the result on Saturday and use that as a platform to build on.

"But we have to accept there are areas of the game where we need to improve."

Leicester manager Paulo Sousa told BBC Radio Leicester:
"We have deserved much more than we have got so far this season and this win will encourage everyone.

"We started the game well and controlled it but with one small mistake we conceded a goal and that disturbed the players.

"We reflected on that at half time, prepared for the second half and went out to win the game. We deserved the win and it can help towards our development to get results regularly."
