Following an opening day reverse against Aston Villa, the young Foxes travelled to East Anglia for their second successive away day of the 2020/21 campaign this weekend.

City found themselves 2-0 down early on in Norwich as Canaries youngster Thomas Dickson-Peters netted a brace of goals before the 11th minute.

Leicester hit back, though, through Welsh striker Will Russ, but their hopes of a comeback were short lived as Tony Springett and then Joe Duffy struck for the home side.

Next up, on Saturday 3 October, the young Foxes travel to Bearwood Park Training Ground to tackle Reading in a 12pm BST kick-off in Berkshire.
