Capital One Cup: Hull 1-1 Leicester (5-4 pens)

Hull players celebrate
Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic was the hero in the shootout, saving Riyad Mahrez's penalty

Championship side Hull shocked Premier League high-flyers Leicester City on penalties to move into the quarter-finals of the League Cup.

Midfielder David Meyler struck the winning fifth penalty as the Tigers scored all their efforts, with Riyad Mahrez hitting the post for the Foxes.

After 90 goalless minutes, Mahrez put Leicester ahead in extra-time, tapping in after Jamie Vardy's shot was saved.

Abel Hernandez levelled for Hull on 106 minutes, taking the game to a shootout.

Leicester have made a superb start to the season but manager Claudio Ranieri made 10 changes, signifying his priorities lie away from the League Cup.

And the Foxes were second best in the first half as Greg Luer had a goalbound shot blocked by Ritchie de Laet and Shaun Maloney's acrobatic effort hit the side netting.

The match went into an extra 30 minutes and Leicester broke the deadlock through Algerian Mahrez, but were pegged back by Hernandez's effort.

Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic was the hero in the shootout, denying Mahrez as Hull progressed to the last eight of the competition for the first time in their history.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri:

"It was important to use all our players tonight. In the end we lost to one penalty so well done to Hull City.

"Of course I'm not pleased with the result, but the performance was good. We wanted to go through, but it was one mistake."

Hull boss Steve Bruce:

Bruce on Hull v Leicester

"We made eight changes and beat a Premier League team, which was terrific.

"There were some decisions that I have to say were erratic. Maybe that's best put like that and I'll keep it at that.

"I would get into trouble if I tell you my real thoughts.

"But some of the decisions we had go against us I just thought were awful, if I am being honest, but there you go."
