Fulham’s Under-18s went down to a 2-0 defeat away to Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

Traditionally a tough place to go, the first 10 minutes were evenly matched on a bright sunny day. Five minutes later Mattias Kait hit the side-netting from six yards after meeting an excellent Marlon Fossey cross.

In the 25th minute Harrison Paton shot wide from 18 yards, before the Whites saw handball claims in the box against a Leicester centre-back waved away.

A spot-kick was awarded on the stroke of half-time, but to the hosts. Foday Nabay felled a Foxes winger in the box and a Leicester striker sent Marek Rodàk the wrong way from the spot.

Elijah Adebayo headed over from a free-kick and Kait cleared the bar from the edge of the box in the early stages of the second half. Kait then hit the post and Stephen Humphrys saw an effort flash inches wide as the Whites piled on the pressure.

On the hour mark, great play in midfield fed substitute Ravin Shamsi but his right-footed shot was too high, before the Whites were hit on the break and Leicester increased their advantage. A ball over the top wasn't cleared and fell to Leicester’s number 10 who finished in the top corner with the outside of his boot from 18 yards.

Fulham refused to give up and in the 75th minute Adebayo had a header from a corner cleared off the line. Humphrys then shot marginally wide.

And Fulham’s luckless afternoon was summed up when Aron Davies hit the bar with five minutes remaining.

Fulham: Rodàk, Fossey, Adebayo, Davies, Mundle-Smith, Nabay (Dolan 56, Harris 85), Paton (Shamsi 46), Adeniran, Kait, Humphrys, Walker.
