Leicester and Forest claim first points


Leicester City had to come from behind to earn a 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest at Loughborough University.

After the home side had taken the lead through Jeffrey Schlupp, Forest went ahead in the Group E match, thanks to a Fred Neilson header and a penalty from Ben Brereton.

But Raul Uche struck a late equaliser that gave each of the East Midlands teams their first point in the competition.

Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United lead the group with six points each.

Leicester’s Premier League 2 side are next in action on 9 January.
