Score: 4-3 Loss
Goals: Ethan Pittham (2), Theo Powys-Smith
1st Half: Initially, for the first 5-10 minutes we looked a strong match to Mansfield. With a new relatively new squad this season we started to take to the new 3-2-3-2 formation. We created some early chances with a strike from Ethan going past the right hand post. However, Mansfield used great forward runs and their undeniably pacy players to good affect, winning numerous short corners. One was cleanly converted with a low strike into the bottom left corner, and more followed in the first half, with some goal-line scrambles going their way. Their structured short corner routines allowed them to open up space and have time to take shots at goal. By half time, Mansfield had managed to score 4, leaving us with an uphill battle.
2nd Half: Leicester had seemingly clicked into gear, Alex and Raf showing their work-rate and putting in some fantastic tackles. Interceptions were being made all across the pitch and Tom was beginning to look very defensively sound on the right hand side. After a slight scramble in the D, the ball broke to Theo and was sent into the bottom left corner. No more than a minute later, Theo had another effort on goal which broke to Ethan and was converted nicely. A much better second half showing was capped by a short corner being converted by Ethan. A few more chances were made but just out of reach after fantastic work by Oscar, Joseph and Jason in the wide areas.
