Match Preview: Leicester City Under-21s (H)

7 November 2023

Fleetwood Town are back in action on Tuesday night as they play their final match in this season's EFL Trophy group competition, with Leicester City's Under-21s the visitors to Highbury Stadium for a 7pm kick-off.

Fixture: Fleetwood Town v Leicester City U21s

Competition: The Bristol Street Motors Trophy

Date: Tuesday 7 November 2023

Kick-off: 7pm BST

Venue: Highbury Stadium



The visitors to Highbury have had a mixed run of form over the last few weeks, and will be looking for a positive result on Tuesday night as a win would see them leapfrog Lee Johnson's side into second play and see them progress into the first round of the knockout stages. A draw wouldn't be enough for the Foxes who sit one point behind Fleetwood on three points.

Their only win in this competition was a narrow 1-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers. Silko Thomas scored the only goal of the game in the 9th minute, and the Foxes will be hoping another one of his goals can help secure their place in the top two. In their opening game, Wigan Athletic scored seven past them with Leicester only able to reply with one goal back. They'e learnt a lot since that game at the DW Stadium.

Last time out against Chelsea, Ben Nelson's equaliser in the final 10 minutes earned Leicester City Development Squad a point away at Chelsea in Premier League 2 action. City's youngsters remain unbeaten in their last two after a 1-0 win over Tranmere Rovers in the EFL Trophy last time out.

Match Reports

Report: Town progress in Bristol Street Motors Trophy after win over Leicester

7 November 2023

Fleetwood Town progressed into the knockout stages of the Bristol Street Motors Trophy after a 4-0 win over Leicester City's Under-21s at Highbury on Tuesday night.

A brace from captain Ryan Broom in the first 45 minutes and a first senior goal for Will Johnson early and one from Ryan Graydon in the second half helped Town go on to knock out Leicester City in the competition and see the Red and White army into the hat for Round Two.

It was Fleetwood who started off on the front foot, and Graydon was the man who struck the target first after Broom's low driven cross found the former Cork City player inside the 18-yard box. His volley caight Leicester keeper Brad Young by surprise, but it was a fine save to react to that powerful effort.

On the ten minute mark, the visitors tried their look from range looking to catch Town keeper Stephen McMullan off guard, but he had his angles covered at his near post.

Broom - who was named captain for the match - thought he had opened the scoring five minutes later. He linked up well with Graydon down the right flank and when he entered the penalty area, he went low and hard across Young's goal, but like the Foxes, he failed to hit the target.

Xavier Simons was the next player to have a shot at goal. The midfielder worked a couple yards of space from distance and pulled the trigger. His shot was blocked on the way through which made it difficult for Young, but second later, he had another attempt, this time it was parried out for a corner.

Town did break the deadlock before the half-hour mark. Broom took the corner on the left flank and managed to find the far corner directly from the set-piece. It missed out everyone in the box to give the hostst the lead.

Lee Johnson's side kept the pressure on until the half-time break and grabbed the all important second. Broom's cross / shot took Young by surprise and it floated over his head and landed in the back of the net - we will have to ask him if he meant it or not.

Pharrell Brown - who was making his first start of the season - nearly made it three in the first half. The tricky winger came in from the left on his favoured right foot and curled one towards the back post, but it was well saved.

Both Town and Leicester made double changes at the interval, with the hosts taking off Bosun Lawal for Johnson, and he was on the scoredsheet within five minutes after the young defender's cross from the left found it's way in at the near post. Just what Fleetwood needed! 

It was a long-awaited return for Fleetwood midfielder Harvey Macadam - who has been sidelined for a long period of time due to a hamstring injury - and it was good to see him back out on the grass again.

The Foxes were still creating chances, and if it wasn't for interventions from Harrison Holgate and Johnson, the last 25 minutes could have been rather different under the floodlights.

Graydon got Town's fourth with a little bit of help from Young between the sticks, who saw the ball slip through his gloves on a wet and slippery pitch with only minutes left on the clock.

Town XI: McMullan (GK), Lawal (Johnson, 46'), Robertson, Tshimanga, Broom (C), Simons, Holgate, Graydon, Teale (Glenfield. 46'), Brown (Macadam, 60'), Armstrong.

Subs not used: Lynch (GK), Mayor, Omochere, Patterson.
