Jermaine Beckford nets a hattrick as Leicester City see off struggling Nottingham Forest in their FA Cup third-round replay.

Leicester City eased past floundering Nottingham Forest in their third-round FA Cup replay this evening.

A Jermaine Beckford hattrick was the highlight as Nigel Pearson's men progressed to round four.

Leicester began on the front foot and were almost ahead when Guy Moussi cleared Neil Danns's volley off the line.

They soon took the lead when George Boateng turned a Lloyd Dyer cross into his own net.

The visitors should have equalised just minutes later but Robbie Findley sent his effort from inside the six-yard box over Kasper Schmeichel's crossbar.

Beckford picked up his first on the half-hour mark by flinging himself at a loose ball after Lee Camp failed to hold on to a cross.

The former Everton man made it three by capitalising on Moussi's error and lobbing Camp before securing his hattrick by reacting first to a rebound.

Steve Cotterill's Forest have now only scored in one game of the past 11 while the Foxes will host Paulo Di Canio's Swindon Town in the fourth round.
