Leicester’s poor run continued just 3 minutes into this Friday night tie when Wes Morgan was shown a straight red card for a last man tackle and left city facing 87 minutes with 10 men and Kasper as a stand in captain.

City had to push harder with the defecit and for the 42 minutes of the first half they were equal to everything Millwall threw at them and even provided some chances going forward with both Nugent and James firing long range shots wide of goal, before Chris Wood tested Forde from close range.


City again went close in the second half, Anthony Knockaert’s free kick was put into a good position by Chris Wood but no one was on hand to turn it in. Minutes later and Chris Wood again created one of the best chances latching onto a corner and forcing a fine finger-tipped save out of Forde.

Millwall had quietly been knocking at the door and finally got the breakthrough 3 minutes from time when Alan Dunne was allowed too much time on the ball in the area and sidefooted the ball past Kasper Schmeichel to give the visiting side all 3 points.

City could have equalised in the 90th minute when Kasper Schmeichel challenged for a headsr from a corner but the referee saw a foul in the build up and Leicester’s winless streak continues to 6 games.
