Report/reaction from York

Leeds 1-3 Leicester

90. We’re into added time...

88. Maswanhise is causing Leeds problems, he does well down the right but his low ball is through everyone and cleared.

86. Much the same flow to the game in the last few minutes, Leeds trying to work Leicester around. Foxes more than happy to sit in their shape and counter when given the chance.

84. Fitzhugh off, Russ on.

83. United trying to muster attacks, Leicester have stepped off and are happy to let Leeds have the ball. Not having much joy, though.

Leicester gain two-goal cushion

79. Leicester free-kick on the far side, lovely delivery from Fitzhugh and Spencer-Adams produces great diving header.

79. Spencer-Adams scores...

77. Summerville’s pace is an asset in this situation. He latches onto a pass forward, he’s down the left and into the box but his low ball is cut out by the Foxes defence.
