Academy: Leicester 2-0 VILLA


Villa conceded two late goals as Tony McAndrew's young charges were beaten by Leicester.

Foxes striker Billy Kee earned his side a penalty when he was brought down in the box and then dusted himself down to slot home the opener in the 76th minute.

And the home side secured the points four minutes from time when Craig King calmly finished from 12 yards out.

Youth coach Tony McAndrew said: "It was disappointing. We played quite well in the first half and could have been two or three goals up.

"We didn't play well after the break. We played right into Leicester's hands.

"We didn't get it down and pass it. We were playing too many long balls and we paid the price."

VILLA: Parish; Bradley, Roome, Clark, Flanagan; Albrighton, Blythe, Hofbauer, Grocott; Weimann, Collins. Subs: Dyer (for Grocott), Stieber (for Blythe), R Simmonds (for Bradley), Poyser.
