WHU Reserves

Leicester City gave us a hard game at Filbert Street. The last half was scoreless, and when the home side took the lead they must have fancied their chance. However, we were still very much in contention, and a move involving several players ended with Alvin Martin hitting the roof of the net for the equaliser. From thence onward the teams continued to be evenly balanced, and the 1-1 draw was a fair result.
