Following last weekend's comeback 4-4 draw at Norwich City, the young Foxes remain unbeaten in 2020 and strengthened their sixth-placed standing in the league with a fifth win of the season.

Kian Pennant opened the scoring inside just two minutes at the Club's training ground before older brother Terell doubled City's advantage before the half-hour mark.

A composed penalty from Dempsey Arlott-John, on the other hand, made it 3-0 to Leicester, but Alfie Anderson was able to pull one back for the Royals on the cusp of half-time.
