Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has been forced to rely on Nigeria international striker Kelechi Iheanacho to rescue his side from poor form in the English Premier League.

After Iheanacho scored in a 1-0 win over Gillingham in the third round of the FA Cup, he came off the bench to help Leicester defeat Walsall 1-0 in round four.

However, their fortunes didn’t improve for long; they lost their next two games, 3-0 against Manchester United and 1-0 against Arsenal before Martinelli scored the game’s only goal in a 1-0 victory over Burnley this weekend.

In their first FA Cup fourth-round clash of the season, Blackburn Rovers played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Birmingham City.

Blackburn also edged the replay thanks to a stroke of fortune – Auston Trusty scoring an own goal in the 100th minute.

With a return to the Premier League at the forefront of their minds, winning the FA Cup for the seventh time is down the list of Blackburn Rovers’ priorities, but Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side will relish the opportunity to test their mettle against a top-tier mainstay.
