The young Foxes, still searching for their maiden win of the season, were in front for over half-an-hour in Burton-upon-Trent, although a late turnaround from the visitors sealed the points.

With 33 minutes on the clock, Liam Loughlin played in Fitzhugh to convert past George Wickens in the Fulham goal at the England national team's training centre at St. George's Park.

However, two goals in two second-half minutes, a brace from Jay Stansfield, means that City's youngsters continue to search for a first three points after four matches in U18 Premier League South.

As a result, Leicester are in ninth place in the South standings with two points so far this term - gathered in earlier draws with Norwich City and Reading - while Fulham sit top with 10 points.

The young Foxes now have a two-week break from action before welcoming Arsenal to the Club's Belvoir Drive training ground on Saturday 14 September (11:30am BST kick-off).

They then head to Beaufort Road on Saturday 21 September to tackle Swansea City (11am BST kick-off), before hosting Chelsea on Saturday 5 October (12pm BST kick-off).
