Under-23s begin Premier League Cup campaign with defeat

6 October 2018

Norwich City Under-23s began their Premier League Cup campaign with a 3-0 defeat at Leicester City in Group D.

City trailed 2-0 after just 20 minutes following Uche Rubio's header and Tyrese Shade's strike which took a huge deflection to loop over Jon McCracken.

Simon Power hit the post in the second-half as City tried to find a way back into the match but the points were sealed in stoppage time after Ciaren Jones scored an unfortunate own goal.

Next up for the Under-23s is a visit to Stoke City in Premier League 2 Division 2 on Monday, October 22 at 7pm. 

City XI: McCracken; Marshall (Kamal, 46), Odusina, Jones, Richards; Power, Payne, Aransibia, Scully; Milovanovic; Idah
