Andy King struck the equaliser as Leicester deservedly took big-spending Manchester City to a replay in their FA Cup third-round tie.
The Foxes took the lead inside a minute when the unmarked Sol Bamba stabbed home from inside the six-yard box.
James Milner levelled with a crisp left-foot strike from the edge of the area before Carlos Tevez struck with a clever finish from close range.
King then slotted home after keeper Joe Hart failed to hold a teasing cross.
The draw was no more than Leicester deserved after a bold and enterprising performance from Sven-Goran Eriksson's team.
The Swede is a former boss of Manchester City and the winners of the replay will meet another of Eriksson's former clubs - Notts County - in the fourth round of the competition.
