Leicester come from behind to beat Albion
ALBION Under-18s slipped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Leicester on Saturday as the Foxes staged a second-half comeback to claim all three points.
Goalkeeper Ethan Ross saved an early Leicester penalty, before an own goal midway through the half sent Albion in 1-0 up at the break.
But the visitors turned the game on its head after the interval, as two goals were enough to see off Albion’s youngsters.
“We are disappointed with the result,” said Albion’s Under-18s coach Aaron Danks.
“A draw would have probably been a fair result.
“Credit where credit is due, Leicester were a very difficult side to play against.
“They controlled the opening stages but we grew into the game and managed to go into half-time leading 1-0.
“They started the second half brightly and managed to get two goals.
“We dominated the last 20 minutes without having any joy.
“Unfortunately on the day our boys didn’t sort out the problems that faced them."
Albion: Ross, Sweeney, Hallahan, Gannon, Gregory, Barbir, Scrivens, Ward (Smith HT), Wright, S.Nabi (Miller 65’), Campbell (Roberts 75’).
Unused Subs: Moran, Pritchatt.
