Beaglehole was also thrilled with the toughness on show from Leicester's youngsters at Tranmere, especially goalscorers George Hirst and Admiral Muskwe.

He added: "In the first minute of the game, the first ball down the side, that was a [heavy challenge] on Hirsty and I thought: ‘Aye, aye, they’re going to try and roughen him up’.

"To be fair, he loves it, he relishes in that. I was really, really pleased for him and Ade because they took some stick, elbows in, backing in.

"Ade was great at that too. We keep talking about development, it’s a development group, and what a game for their development."
