FT: Leicester City U21 3-1 Dev Squad

FT: Leicester City U21 3-1 Dev Squad

That's the final whistle and Leicester deserve their win. Their first half performance was clinical, however the Hammers rallied in the second half and put in a much improved performance. 

90+7: Jack Barmby tries his luck from distance but Howes watches it flash wide. 

90+4: Adam Smith, as superb as he's been today, must be trying to set a world record for the amount of time wasted today. Finishing mid-table clearly means a lot to some people.  

90: Eight minutes to be added on here. 

88: Unlucky! Grady Diangana goes close to scoring his first goal for the U21s as he races onto to a fantastic through ball by Josh Cullen. He does superbly to break the offside trap but it falls just the wrong side of the post. 

86: Good move by the Hammers. Lee starts the move, before Borg and Diangana combine well to win a corner. Nasha is replaced by Noha Sylvestre. 

82: Just under ten minutes to go at the King Power, there are some tired bodies out there now. 

77: Oscar Borg is being readied after Nathan Mavila was on the end of a rash challenge. It doesn't look good for Mavila, who has had a lively game. Both sets of physios are looking after him as are first aid staff. 

74: Steve Potts makes a change bringing Grady Diangana on in place of the goalscorer Jaanai Gordon. 

72: Leicester are rattled as Lee stings the palms of Smith again. Mavila has a great opportunity to cross it but can't quite find the right ball. A game of two halves, this. 

68: GOAL for the Hammers! 3-1. Josh Cullen is tripped inside the box. Elliot Lee steps up, he hits to the right yet Smith reads and a palms it away. Jaanai Gordon is there to slot the rebound in. 

65: An almost exquisite one-two between Elliot Lee and Josh Cullen. Cullen starts the move with a nice turn and pass before Lee attempts and pulls off lovely flick on the spin. A touch of Brazilian-like flair to brighten an overcast day in Leicestershire.  

61: Simonas Stankevicius is on in place of Kris Scott. 

59: Ben Chillwell is replaced by Louis Rowley after being on the end of a robust challenge. 

56: The game has got a fierce edge to it now. No end-of-season niceness that's for sure!

54: Josh Cullen goes into the book for a full blooded challenge. 

49: Josh Pask lofts a free kick forward which Nathan Mavila runs on to. He lays it off to Pike who swings it in. It falls to Cullen in a very similar situation to two minutes earlier and Smith makes the save. 

47: Great start from the Hammers as Alex Pike bombs down the right flank and puts in a good delivery. Josh Cullen picks up the lose ball in the six yard box yet Smith does well to smother his attempt. 

46: The teams are back on the pitch. Will be very interesting to see how the young Hammers respond, certainly a test of character for both sides. Lee and Cullen get us back under way. 

HT: Leicester have been in dominant mood and deserve their lead. The Hammers look sluggish and the Foxes have capitalised. 

43: Some frustrated West Ham bodies out there. Leicester have been impressive, however hard hard to look past two games in four days as a big factor. Manny Onariase makes an important block. A big half-time ahead for Steve Potts and his charges. 

40: Five minutes to go before half-time, can the Hammers get themselves a lifeline?  

35: Almost a fourth for the hosts save excellent work by Josh Pask. The Foxes have really got their tails up and somehow they find themselves with four forwards to one West Ham defender. However Pask stands tall and makes a crucial interception. 

30: 3-0 Leicester and what a goal it was. Ben Chilwell cuts the free-kick back to Jak McCourt who shoots from 30 yards plus. It absolutely rifles past Howes and into the net. The technique and procision was superb. 

29: Yet another foul given to Leicester, this one was deserved as Onariase tripped Panayiotou. Free-kick in a dangerous position...

25: Lee fashions himself a chance, beating two men for pace before dinking a shot when one-on-one with Smith. Unfortunately the effort goes agonizingly over the bar. 

21: Goal for Leicester! Jack Barmby shoots from distance, Sam Howes does well to get his finger tips to it but it crawls toward the goal. He lunges at it but can only push it in off the post, he was inches away from making the save of the season there. 2-0. 

17: Seconds later Josh Pask is pulled up for a foul, another dubious decision. Jak McCourt winds a shot up from distance which flies just wide. 

15: Alex Pike is penalised, and then booked, rather incredulously, for a sliding tackle. He can't believe it however it'll be a free kick to Leicester. The delievery is swung in and Joe Dodoo almost doubles his and the Foxes lead from close range. 

13: Cullen swivels expertly before Nasha sends it for Lee to chase. Joe Davis senses the danger and heads away. 

10: Lee and Gordon combine well to start a counter attack yet it breaks down on the left with a missplaced pass. The Hammers have a freekick after Mavila was fouled but Adam Smith rises highest to catch it. 

8: That's better! Nathan Mavila bursts down the left wing and wins his side a corner, he took the ball 50 maybe even 60 yards there, superb work. The delivery is good but evades Onariase in the box. 

6: The Hammers are stuggling to settle here, Howes is urging his teammates on but they are struggling to maintain any kind of possession. 

4: Goal for Leicester! Joe Dodoo slots calmly past Sam Howes, capitalising on lose pass. Not the start the Hammers had in mind. 1-0. 

3: Steve Potts has made several changes to the team that beat Chelsea just four days ago. Sam Howes, Jaanai Gordon and Elliot Lee come in for Raphael Spiegel, Djair Parfitt-Williams and Jordan Brown. 

1: And we're off! Leicester get us under way kicking right to left in the first half. 

13.59: Both teams are walking out onto the pitch for the final time. There's a very respectable crowd here at the King Power considering it's a Monday afternoon. 

13.51: Twenty one games into the league campaign and today sees the first female referee. Amy Fearn will take charge of proceedings, her assistants are Sam Mulhall and Oliver Bickle. Steve Kings is the Fourth Official.  

13.42: Both teams are out on the pitch, which to be fair, looks in great condition considering it's had a season of wear and tear. The sun has come out as well in time for kick off. Excellent news. 

13.26: Today's hosts Leicester on the other hand, are currently eighth, a win for the Foxes could take them fifth depending on other results. 

13.17: Following the Hammers impressive 1-0 win over Chelsea on Friday evening at Stamford Bridge, the Irons are back in action at the King Power. It's the final game of the season for the both teams, with, in all honestly, little to play for. 

The Hammers, already relegated, have picked up surprise yet deserved wins over Manchester City and Chelsea recently and will look to end their season on a high. A win today would take them to 20 points, just two behind Fulham.
