Match Preview

Somma in line to start Davide Somma could start for Leeds in the Carling Cup clash with Leicester after bagging a brace in Saturday's 3-1 Championship win over Millwall. Boss Simon Grayson could opt to rest Luciano Becchio so the South African could be set for his full debut. Defender Ben Parker is back in training after recovering from an Achilles injury and Max Gradel is also back in contention after missing the start of the season due to a four-match ban. Billy Paynter (shin) and Robert Snodgrass (knee) are still ruled out as is long-term absentee Patrick Kisnorbo (knee). Boss Simon Grayson has confirmed Calum Davenport is training with his side this week. The former West Ham defender is available after parting company with the Hammers in March. Conrad Logan is likely to keep his place in the Leicester team. Logan replaced first-choice keeper Chris Weale just before half-time in the 3-0 defeat to Burnley on Saturday. Weale suffered a shoulder injury at Turf Moor and will probably be rested with the league game against Reading at the weekend in mind. Logan would perhaps have played anyway having kept goal against Macclesfield in round one. Striker Matty Fryatt and midfielder Lloyd Dyer were absent on Saturday through injury and boss Paulo Sousa will assess them ahead of the trip to Yorkshire. "Matty has a problem, not a big injury, but if we risk it we could lose him for one to two months. So we need to protect him and it is the same with Lloyd Dyer," said Sousa.

Match Report

Howard leaves it late A late penalty from Steve Howard helped Leicester come from behind to beat Leeds 2-1 and book a place in the Carling Cup third round. The Yorkshire side forged ahead through a header from in-form striker Davide Somma, who started the game after a double against Millwall at the weekend. However, Richie Wellens pulled the Foxes level after 65 minutes and Howard kept his nerve from the spot after Neill Collins handled in the box. The game came to life after a poor first quarter when Leeds goalkeeper Shane Higgs was forced to punch a fierce drive over the top from Dany N'Guessan after the Leicester man made room to turn and shoot from the edge of the box. Max Gradel, making his first appearance of the season after a four-game ban, was looking lively for Leeds against his old club and his powerful right-footed drive was tipped over the top by Foxes goalkeeper Conrad Logan after half an hour. Within a minute Gradel had laid on the opening goal when his superb first-time cross from the right was expertly glanced home by Somma. Bradley Johnson almost doubled Leeds' advantage in the 44th minute but his angled shot after advancing into the left-hand side of the box floated just too high. Leicester had to scramble the ball away from danger right at the start of the second half after Gradel stole into the box from the right and Higgs then spilled a low, swerving shot from Gallagher at the other end but gathered at the second attempt. Gradel jinked his way into the box from the right side again in the 57th minute but could not apply the finish which his trickery deserved. Leicester were not out of it though and Dutch full-back Michael Lamey's well-struck shot from 25 yards needed a flying block from Alex Bruce to prevent it testing Higgs. The visitors levelled when some poor control from Johnson handed them possession on the edge of the box and two slick passes presented an opportunity to Wellens, who made no mistake with a low finish. It took a stunning point-blank save from Higgs to keep Leeds on level terms five minutes later when he somehow blocked Howard's close-range effort from Gallagher's low cross from the right. Morrison did brilliantly to head clear a Gradel cross under pressure from Somma, who then rifled over with his left foot after receiving possession from substitute Sanchez Watt. The decisive moment came when a seemingly innocuous set-piece floated forward, bounced up and struck Leeds defender Collins on the arm, and Howard made no mistake from the spot.
