An early strike from Brodi Hughes was cancelled out by Nelson's late equaliser at Kingsmeadow, as City's youngsters remained unbeaten in their last two after a 1-0 win over Tranmere Rovers in the EFL Trophy last time out.
After a slow start to the season which saw the Foxes win just once in their opening seven games, they have turned a corner and have only lost once in their last four games in all competitions, and take their PL2 tally up to seven points, following a 3-1 win over Fulham last month.
On Friday night in the capital it was the hosts who took an early lead through Hughes only 18 minutes into the fixture when he was assisted by Leo Castledine, but a number of changes at the break sparked life into the Foxes who came out for the second half determined to take something from the capital.
Leicester City's Development Squad
In action at Kingsmeadow.
In the 83rd minute, the leveller was found when Arjan Raikhy picked out defender Nelson, who was able to ensure a point would be taken back to the East Midlands, as a positive four weeks sees the Development Squad build their way through the PL2 rankings.
The Foxes head home next week when they welcome Newcastle to LCFC Training Ground on Friday evening as what will be a tough PL2 fixture in Seagrave as they take on a side, currently just one point behind them.
