Leicester City 2-1 West Ham United

Korrey Henry was on target at Leicester City

West Ham United travelled to unbeaten Leicester City on Saturday without a win in Premier League U18 South and were again on the losing side.

Steve Potts and Mark Phillips' side have struggled this campaign and they could not turn their fortunes around in the midlands as they were beaten 2-1.

A late Korrey Henry strike halved the deficit after City had given themselves a two-goal advantage, but it was too-little, too-late for the Hammers who find themselves at the bottom of the table alongside Reading.

Tyrese Shade gave Leicester the lead on the stroke of half time as he was set up by Connor Tee, while the midfielder was on hand to grab another assist 18 minutes from time to allow Lukas Husek to score.

Henry grabbed a third of the campaign with four minutes left but it was a fifth defeat in five league games for the Hammers as the referee's final whistle sounded.

West Ham United: Matrevics, Ngakia, Wells, Mingi, Hannam (Hamilton 23), Coventry, Lewis (Constantinou 67), Rosa, Watson (Adarkwa 73), Longelo, Henry
Subs not used: Trialist (GK), Dalipi
