Fantastic play all round

Muskwe Puts City's U23s Ahead

Zimbabwe striker Admiral Muskwe scores early on in the Development Squad's encounter at Wolves on Friday.

Sean St Ledger said: "It was fantastic play all round. I think what Darnell Johnson and Sam Hughes did so well was being first to the ball. It was a fantastic through ball from Hirst for Muskwe's goal and a really confident, cool finish from the man himself. It was exactly what Leicester deserved after a good start to what was eventually a difficult match."

The best display yet

Eppiah Thrilled To Be Back

Development Squad striker Josh Eppiah speaks to LCFC TV after making a long-awaited return from a back injury on Friday.

Sean St Ledger said: "The intensity went up and, for me, it was the best performance that I've seen the Under-23s play this season. It took until the 27th minute for Wolves to enter City's 18-yard box and that says it all for me. They had a five or 10 minutes where they came into the game, but Leicester otherwise contained Wolves really well."

Hirst plays it brilliantly

We Deserved Wolves Win, Says Hirst

Forward George Hirst speaks to LCFC TV following Friday's win at Wolves for Leicester City's Development Squad.

Sean St Ledger said: "It was very good striker-play from Hirst to win the penalty, but it was poor from the centre-back. When you're playing against a bigger, stronger opponent, you have to accept it and play from behind sometimes. Once you get the wrong side, you're always in trouble, and Hirst played it brilliantly."

Off the mark

Goals: Wolves U23s 0 Leicester City U23s 2

Watch back the goals as Leicester City's Development Squad sealed their opening win of the 2019/20 season at Wolves.

Sean St Ledger said: "I was delighted for Hirst to get his goal, it was fantastic for him. Strikers always want to get off the mark. He's a natural goalscorer and it doesn't matter if it's from a penalty, just get on the scoresheet. It's big for the squad in general as well because this is a result which shows them how good they can play."

A massive result

Sean St Ledger said: "This is massive for the Under-23s. It gives them something to build on going into the Arsenal match in a couple of weeks. If they play like this there - with the same intensity, hunger and desire - then they have every chance of getting another three points there. [Steve] Beaglehole will be delighted."
