A youthful City side bagged 8 goals to beat non-league Quorn AFC at Sutton Park.
City including a trialist - Milos Malenovic, on trial from Swiss side Neuchatel Xamax scored an early goal when Malenovic charged down a poor kick from the Goalkeeper that bounced off the trialist and looped into the net.
Only moments later though Quorn equalised following a misjudgement from Polish goalkeeper Alex Cisak.
Goals from Ricky Sappleton and Eric Odhiambo followed as City took a 3-1 lead before the Quorn Goalkeeper took down Andy King in the box, following a great run to win a penalty for The Foxes, which Sappleton coolly struck home for his second of the night.
King then added a fifth with a great volley from outside the box and then Sappleton getting City's sixth and his hat-trick with only 37 minutes on the clock.
Just before half-time, a great cross by young full-back Luke O'Neill set up King for his second to take Leicester 7-1 up at the break.
At half-time, Nigel Pearson made two changes, bringing Carl Pentney on for Cisak and Billy McKay on for Malenovic.
Quorn pulled one back before a lively looking McKay scored a well taken goal from a Levi Porter cross.
Quorn added two more consolation goals before the final whistle but on the whole a promising City performance!
City now travel to Kettering on Saturday.
City: Cisak (Pentney 45), Rowe-Turner, Garner, Magunda (Burns 68), O'Neill, Porter, A. King, Hellings, Odhiambo, Sappleton (C King 72), Malenovic (McKay 45).
