It is the third showdown between the clubs at this stage of the competition in a decade, with Leicester coming out on top in each of the previous occasions at Gigg Lane.

David Flitcroft will be hoping to make it third time lucky for the Shakers, whose only win so far this season came in the previous round when they came from behind to see off Wigan Athletic.

Leon Clarke scored both goals for his 16th different club, who have drawn three and lost one of their opening four League One matches.

Leicester pulled off the great escape in the Premier League last year and have continued their momentum under Claudio Ranieri at the start of this campaign, winning two of their first three fixtures and earning a late point against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

They last won this competition in 2000, when they beat Tranmere Rovers 2-1 in the final.
