Jack Roles bagged an 87' winner as we saw off Leicester City 1-0 in the PL2 at home yesterday.
With centre-back @jtangs.365
& goalkeeper @baustin_
superb at keeping Leicester’s quick and physically powerful side at bay during a gritty first half, we opened up in terms of playing forward after the restart.
Andy King & Danny Simpson, both 2016 PL title winners in the Foxes’ side along with right-back saw his header come back off the post while Roles hit the woodwork with a good chance of our own before making amends against a tiring visiting team by finishing off a quick break in the closing moments.
Kazaiah Sterling, back in for his first game of the season following injury, was a hard-working presence up front throughout and played a part in the goal, while left-back Jamie Reynolds @jamiereynolds1
marked his return from a lengthy lay-off after knee surgery as a half-time substitute.
Roles and Sterling tested their goalkeeper either side of Austin’s good reaction save to deny Loft, with the latter making another impressive save on 40', despite seeing it late.
Star player Oliver Skipp @oliver.skipp
wasn't involved as he will be part of the first team squad today.
