Foxes boss' dismay at second half display

Foxes boss' dismay at second half display

Leicester development squad manager Steve Beaglehole saw positives in his side's performance, despite their 3-0 defeat to Wolfsburg.

The Foxes Under-23 side made their debut in the Premier League International Cup on Tuesday night but found the Bundesliga outfit in a clinical mood at King Power Stadium.

"I thought we did very well in the first half and we were unlucky to go in 1-0 down," said Beaglehole, who saw the deadlock broken on 40 minutes when Sebastien Wimmer's free-kick was glanced past Ben Hamer by Oscar Zawada.

"We conceded just before half time which was a blow because it came as a result of our own throw-in.

"We went in 1-0 down and we said all the right things at half-time – the next goal was massive. If we get it, we could have gone on to win it, but they got it and we had a tough night."

City, who had a goal disallowed for offside in the first half, struggled to get going after half-time and were two behind just before the hour when the pacy Anton Donkor unleashed a thunderous effort beyond Hamer.

The Foxes conceded a carbon copy six minutes later - again to the impressive Donkor.
