Norwich City's Belgian international Vadis Ofoe continued his injury comeback with a 90-minute outing in the Canaries' 2-2 development league draw at Leicester City's U21s on Monday.

Ofoe has not featured for the first team since damaging knee ligaments on his first senior start in October's Championship goalless stalemate at Sheffield Wednesday.

The powerful midfielder played 60-minutes in last week's behind-closed-doors friendly against Chicago Fire and stepped that up again in the East Midlands as he bids to force his way into Alex Neil's plans for the Championship promotion run-in.

Ofoe was joined in the visitors' line-up by young professional Conor McGrandles and Carlton Morris, who is eligible to play at development level for his club under the terms of his current loan deal with League Tow York City.

Paul Wilkinson's side were twice pegged back at Belvoir Drive with the Foxes' striker Joe Dodoo levelling in stoppage time. Sam Kelly put Norwich in front in the first half before Ben Chilwell equalised.
