One week following a helter-skelter 4-3 defeat by Reading at LCFC Training Ground last time out, the young Foxes headed to the second city to take on the ninth-placed Baggies.

Following an even start, Josh Shaw got on the end of Tom Fellows' pass to put West Brom ahead, before Jamie Andrews doubled the home side's advantage before the interval. Ethan Fitzhugh, though, halved the deficit for City's youngsters 11 minutes into the second half.

Despite Leicester pushing for a late equaliser, a brace of strikes from Reyes Cleary, in the 79th and 82nd minutes, put the match beyond the visitors in the latter moments, before Arsenal visit LCFC Training Ground on Saturday 24 April (12pm BST kick-off).

The details...

City: Chibueze; Cook, Lindsay, Braybrooke (c), Kutshitnza; Godsmark-Ford (Aisthorpe 45'), Wormleighton (Booth 63'), Cover; K. Pennant (Maswanhise 64'), T. Pennant, Fitzhugh.

Subs not used: Weeks, Alves.
