A League Cup Win For City's Under-18s

Leicester City's Under-18s triumphed 3-2 in Saturday's Under-18 Premier League Cup Group E fixture against Blackburn Rovers at LCFC Training Ground.

The Foxes youngsters picked up a first League Cup victory of the campaign last weekend in their outing versus the Lancashire outfit. 

Jahmari Lindsay opened the scoring with the only goal of the half in the 14th minute, before Harley Paul O'Grady-Macken levelled things up in the 51st minute. 

However, it only took two minutes for City to re-take the lead when Amani Richards netted his first of the match, before etching a second on the scoresheet just before the hour mark, as the forward followed up on his own saved penalty. 

The game wasn't finished before a late surge from Rovers, who forced Leicester's 'keeper Dillion Addai into turning the ball into his own goal, but it would make no difference on the scoreline as the whistle blew moments later. 

The result leaves City third in Group E with three points from three games. Meanwhile in the league, the Foxes youngsters remain in 10th position with a trip to league leaders West Ham United up next on Saturday 19 November (with a 12pm GMT kick-off). 

The details…

City: Addai, Grist (c), McAlinney (Joseph 79'), Cook; Cartwright, Ali (Javaid 72'), Lindsay, Fisken (Lewis 52'), Briggs; Evans, Richards.

Unused subs: Toure, Weeks.

Goals: Evans 58', Richards 53', 59'.
