Under-23s return to PL Cup action against Leicester City

21 January 2019

Norwich City's Under-23s are back in action against Leicester City in the Premier League Cup at Colney Training Centre on Monday (7pm kick-off).

Leicester were last in action against Exeter City Under-23s in the Premier League Cup earlier this month. The Foxes drew 1-1 that day with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall scoring seven minutes from time to salvage a point at Holmes Park. 

Nottingham Forest remain top of Norwich’s Premier League Cup group, as the Reds sit on 9 points with a 100% record in the competition so far. Leicester City sit 2nd in the table on four points, just three points ahead of the Canaries who are at the foot of the table.

Last time in the competition, the Canaries played against Nottingham Forest at Colney in November, narrowly losing 1-0 against the group leaders after a first-half tap-in from Jordan Lawrence-Gabriel.

Norwich played the Foxes earlier this campaign, with the Canaries convincingly beat at Holmes Park losing 3-0; goals from Uche Rubio, Tyrese Shade and an unfortunate own goal from Ciaren Jones was enough to get all three points.
