CANARIES’ FORM
. The reverse meeting between the sides in the Barclays Under-18s Premier League took place in October, with Leicester running out 5-0 victors at Belvoir Drive

A particularly young City outfit travelled to Fulham a fortnight ago, and earned praise from their manager for a highly-impressive display which saw them leave Motspur Park with a point following a 1-1 draw.

The Canaries have named youthful squads of late, with many Under-16s players stepping up to the higher level for the first time in order to help their future development.
