Leicester No2 Davies delighted with Cup win

Leicester City assistant manager Chris Davies says they were pleased with their 3-1 Carabao Cup win over Burton Albion.

Goals from Kelechi Iheanacho and Youri Tielemans saw City take a 2-0 lead inside the opening 20 minutes, but Burton halved the deficit early on in the second period.

However, City rounded off the scoring through James Maddison, but not before Danny Ward had to pull off a stunning save to deny Scott Fraser.

“I think it was a good performance in general," Davies told LCFC TV. “Obviously, from our point of view, the objective was to get through in the game, which we did. Full credit to Burton for their performance, they showed a good energy and spirit in the game and caused us problems at times.

“From our point of view, we could have scored more goals and been a bit more clinical with our attacking play. In general, we're happy to go through.

“When we could get control of the game, we were better, but full credit to Burton for their performance. We were the deserved winners."
