Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is targeting more FA Cup success after the Foxes beat Brighton on Wednesday to reach the quarter-finals. 

Victory in normal time at the King Power Stadium seemed unlikely during a drab fifth-round tie until Kelechi Iheanacho’s scored the winner in the final minute of stoppage time.

Iheanacho’s contribution has seen Leicester make it to the last eight for the second straight season.

The Foxes were knocked out by Chelsea in last season’s quarter-finals and Rodgers wants to go further this time.

He said: ‘I believe we have improved, the mentality in the team has grown over the last year. Let’s see if we can make the next step, let’s see who we get.

‘Everyone was delighted it wasn’t half hour more for extra time. The game was a bit broken and there weren’t so many chances.

‘You have to keep going and keep fighting. It’s another clean sheet, a great win, players getting minutes and getting through to the quarter-finals again.’

The Foxes’ celebrations were tempered, though, after James Justin was carried off with a knee injury having landed awkwardly.

Rodgers added: ‘Hopefully it’s not as bad as what it first seemed. He said he could have walked off and after five minutes in the changing room it eased up. 

‘On first look there’s nothing major which is good news.’
