With back-to-back home wins under their belts against Norwich City and Southampton, the young Foxes went into the game full of confidence, but had to come from behind to take a point at LCFC Training Ground.

The visitors went in front on 16 minutes, when Palace captain Daniel Quick applied the finish from Fionn Mooney's cross, handing the Eagles a half-time lead.

Leicester responded in the second half, as Jasper Kutshitnza found Jack Butterfill and the midfielder made no mistake, getting his side back on level terms on the hour mark.

That's how it stayed, despite 20 shots on goal from the hosts, who were unable to find another way through the south London side's defence.

City remain 12th in the Premier League U18 South table, four points ahead of Southampton, having collected nine points from 14 league fixtures.

Next up, the Club's Under-18s contest their rescheduled FA Youth Cup Third Round tie with Sheffield Wednesday at LCFC Training Ground on Friday (7pm GMT kick-off).
