The Foxes U21 side beat Scunthorpe United to reach the Quarter-Finals

Iheanacho was subbed in the 82nd minute

There was shocks all round when Leicester announced the squad to face The Iron.

Six players who have recent Champions League experience were fielded with a net worth of over £45m.

Fans from over the country shown their frustrations with the cup rulings and Scunthorpe were not happy with the squad City put out.

Rulings say that teams are allowed to field six senior players in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Players including Hamer, Iheanacho, Benalouane, Dragovic, Ulloa and Amartey were in the starting eleven to face the League One side, all of which have Champions League experience.

Punters were quick to get money on Leicester at 6/1 when the squads were announced for what seemed a easy way to make a quick earner.

Leicester got off to a good start thanks to goals from Thomas and Hughes and seemed to be cruising after 13 minutes played.
