Leicester City are out of the FA Cup, they were nowhere near the level required, their opponents wanted it more and questions will be asked of Brendan Rodgers.

For Nottingham Forest and Steve Cooper, they thoroughly deserved the win and they will play Huddersfield Town in the next round of the FA Cup.

Nottingham Forest vs Leicester City prediction

Despite Leicester City's injury issues, they should have enough to beat Steve Cooper's, Nottingham Forest. The midfield battle will be interesting without Wilfred Ndidi, with Dewsbury-Hall and Tielemans it may leave the Foxes exposed in midfield and with Manchester United loanee James Garner being allowed room to find Brennan Johnson, it could be difficult for Leicester but I think they will come out on top.

Prediction: Nottingham Forest 1-2 Leicester City

14:294 months ago

Key player for Leicester City

Despite the injuries in the team, James Maddison will be crucial for Leicester City this afternoon, the English number 10 who has had injury problems will be crucial in getting the ball to Patson Daka today. And with 6 goals and 3 assists he can chip in with goals himself today.
14:244 months ago

Key player for Nottingham Forest

Brennan Johnson will be key if Nottingham Forest are to have any hopes of knocking out another Premier League side. After rejecting bids from Brentford for the winger, the Welshman will be crucial for both league and FA Cup hopes this season.
14:194 months ago

Leicester City Predicted XI

Schmeichel, Justin, Amartey, Soyuncu, Thomas, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Lookman, Maddison, Barnes Daka

With the absence of three first-team defenders, youth may well be required for the Foxes.

14:144 months ago

Nottingham Forest predicted XI

Samba, Spence, Cafu, Mckenna, Lowe, Colback, Yates, Silva, Garner, Johnson, Davis A possible start for Keinan Davis could be possible if Grabban isn't fit to start.

Team news for Nottingham Forest

Lewis Grabban had to be helped off the pitch in last weeks 2-1 defeat away at Cardiff City. He looks set to join Joe Lolley, Joe Worrall and Alex Mighten in missing today's East Midlands Derby for Nottingham Forest.
13:594 months ago

Leicester City

Leicester City who have had an indifferent season will be hoping they can retain their FA Cup having beaten Chelsea in the final last season and started their defence well last month when they beat Watford 4-1 at the King Power Stadium.
13:544 months ago

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest will be hoping to recover from last weekend's 2-1 defeat in Wales against Cardiff City. Steve Cooper's side currently sits 8th in the Championship just two points off sixth and will be hoping to advance further in this season's FA Cup.
