Kelechi Iheanacho netted the winner as Leicester City booked a place in the Fifth Round of the Emirates FA Cup following a 1-0 win against Brentford at the Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon, reports Completesports.com.

Iheanacho scored the decisive goal in the fourth minute, thanks to an assist from James Austin.
