Norwich City Under-23s were in action at Colney tonight, drawing 1-1 with Leicester City in the Premier League Cup group stages (7pm kick-off).
The young Canaries had only been beaten in one of their last five games and were playing a third consecutive home game, beating Aston Villa 2-1 last Monday and bouncing back twice to draw 2-2 with Tottenham Hotspur on Friday.
That wasn’t enough to keep David Wright’s team in the Premier League International Cup but the knockout stages of the PL Cup are still a possibility, with City currently bottom of Group D.
Leicester won the reverse fixture 3-0 in October and the Canaries were held to a 1-1 draw at Exeter, before losing 1-0 at Nottingham Forest, leaving them with one point.
Wright’s development squad was bolstered by the fit-again Louis Thompson against Spurs and striker Carlton Morris began his return to action this evening, with the U18 players preparing for FA Youth Cup fourth round action at Preston tomorrow night.
