Excited to see the U.21’s coming up against League One opposition and checking the gap in quality. Games vs. Burton (2-4) and Bradford (2-2) earlier in this campaign would see this team having a bit of hope to bring in another good result away to Sheffield Wednesday.
Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore had his fringe men and younger players in the side. Ben Petty were without Sammy Braybrooke and Lewis Brunt. Jannik Vestergaard who had a show vs. Fulham was not either in the squad.
As we had thought this became a difficult task for the young Leicester U.21 team, but still not giving away too much as we could count just two goals for The Owls.
No overaged players in the squad, and also fielding a number of players who are part of the U.18’s, makes it a good work out and learning.
The U.21’s will play Arsenal next. The game is on the 24th of October at Aylestone Ground. Arsenal are currently 3rd in the PL2 table. This will another major test for Ben Petty and his team as we do believe they are struggling as so few first team fringe men are available.
Ben Petty cannot continue to field teams that surely are too weak to take on the best teams of this division, and to see the team being relegated would be difficult to accept as this club are trying to take steps towards the opposite.
Leicester U.21 eleven vs. Sheff W,
Odunze, Appiah, Cartwright, Lindsay, Flynn, Booth, Maswanhise, Wormleighton, Alves, Wilson-Brown, Popov, Subs: Cover, T. Pennant, K. Pennant, Godsmark-Ford, Grist
