Many Leicester City fans have been lapping up some more good news after their U21 side managed to beat Sunderland in their backyard.
The Foxes went top of their EFL Trophy group as they managed to overturn a one-goal deficit with a superb second-half performance.
Sunderland only kept three players from their previous game over Southend United, with Jon McLaughlin, Conor McLaughlin and Chris Maguire the only still making the team. However, it was still a team rammed full of fringe players and senior players, including players such as Grant Leadbitter and Duncan Watmore, as Leicester U21s managed a very impressive win given their lack of experience.
Chris Maguire put the Black Cats ahead in the first quarter of an hour, showing his quality as one of the more established players on the pitch, bending a free-kick in from 25-yards out.
The Foxes then equalised in the second half through a penalty from George Hirst, and then later went ahead just three minutes later in the 53rd minute through Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall.
They managed to hold for all three points – and many Leicester fans were delighted, as you can see below…
How close is George Hirst to getting a 1st team squad place? #LCFC
