U21s beaten by late goal at Leicester

A Chris Wood goal three minutes from time condemned Everton U21s to defeat after Matt Kennedy had hit the bar with a free kick.

The Blues' second string had the better of the game and created the better chances, Courtney Duffus even putting the ball in the net in the first half, only to have it chalked off for offside.

But after Kennedy had rattled the woodwork following a foul on David Henen, Wood struck.

Henen came close to a dramatic equaliser in the closing stages when he met Kennedy's cross but Johnny Maddison in the Foxes' goal made an excellent save to deny him.

Everton: Hewelt, Jones, Kenny, Browning, Connolly, Ledson, Williams, Grant, Long, Henen, Duffus
Subs: Hunt, Kennedy, Dowell, Junior, Langton

Report from the Leicester website:

Leicester City's Development Squad moved out of the bottom two after beating Everton 1-0 in the Barclays U21 Premier League at Belvoir Drive on Monday afternoon. A superb finish three minutes from time from Chris Wood sealed the victory for Steve Beaglehole's side, despite the visitors hitting the bar late on through Matthew Kennedy.

A disappointing result but the presence of 1st-teamers Moore and Wood was probably an important factor.
