Norwich City v Leicester City: Player ratings

Player ratings for both Norwich City and Leciester City following their FA Cup fifth round match.

• Norwich City

6 Jed Steer: Left exposed for both Leicester goals. Tested aerially by the Foxes at numerous set pieces.

6 Russell Martin: Struggled at times to shut down the profitable supply line from Lloyd Dyer. Unlucky with header at the other end.

5 Leon Barnett: Badly squared up by David Nugent for the matchwinner. One or two timely interceptions.

6 David Fox: Found it difficult at times to combat Leicester's pressing in central areas. Usual set piece quality.

7 Elliott Bennett: Carried the fight in the first period. Displayed plenty of nous to earn the penalty. Tireless after the interval.

6 Anthony Pilkington: Fleeting glimpses. Suffered along with the rest of Norwich's midfield to establish any forward thrust.

6 Wes Hoolahan: Held his nerve to slot the penalty. Inches from a second after the break, but radar was awry at times.

6 Simeon Jackson: Indirectly earned the Norwich penalty after good link play with Elliott Bennett. Sporadic sights of the Leicester goal.

5 Steve Morison: Fired over a good chance inside the opening minutes. Best work down the channels.

Subs: Aaron Wilbraham (for Morison) 6, James Vaughan (for Jackson) 6, Bradley Johnson (for Fox) 5

• Leicester City

6 Kasper Schmeichel: Naive keeping conceded a penalty. Came to the fore when Norwich pressed in later stages.

6 Lee Peltier: Great energy to attack at will. Edged his match up with friend Anthony Pilkington.

6 Wes Morgan: Honours even with Steve Morison in their personal duel. Major set piece weapon at the other end.

6 Sean St Ledger: Evaded Morison to power home Leicester's opener. Kept Simeon Jackson largely at arm's length.

6 Tom Kennedy: Neat and tidy in possession. Needed more help at times to deal with the overlapping Russell Martin.

7 Ben Marshall: Classy touches on his first start for the Foxes. Great delivery with his right peg.

7 Neil Danns: Bossed the midfield skirmishes. Set the tone for Leicester. Muscular, athletic powerhouse.

6 Ritchie Wellens: Good foil for Neil Danns in that central battleground. Unfussy shift. Did the ugly bits and pieces well.

7 Lloyd Dyer: Bright, inventive. Harnessed pace with quality in wide areas. Constant menace.

7 David Nugent: Looks to have struck up a good understanding with strike partner. As witnessed by the match-winning foray.

7 Jermaine Beckford: Handful. Competitive in the air. Good control on the deck. The pivot for Leicester's attacking patterns of play.

Subs: Paul Knchesky (for Kennedy) 5, Nathan Delfouneso (for Marshall) 5
