Percy Tau played the full 90 minutes as Brighton suffered late FA Cup heartbreak as Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored deep into stoppage time for a 1-0Leicester City win at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday.

The tightly-contested FA Cup fifth round tie seemed to be heading for extra-time when Iheanacho was picked out at the far post and made no mistake with a header in the 94th minute.

South Africa's Percy Tau was named in the starting line-up for the Albion and played the entire match as he continues to settle in at the Premier League outfit.

Brighton next face Aston Villa in a short turnaround in a Premier League clash with Tau hoping to play a significant role at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 22:00.
