Quorn 4 - 8 Leicester

Quorn 4 - 8 Leicester

A youthful City side bagged 8 goals to beat non-league Quorn AFC at Sutton Park.

City including a trialist - Milos Malenovic, on trial from Swiss side Neuchatel Xamax scored an early goal when Malenovic charged down a poor kick from the Goalkeeper that bounced off the trialist and looped into the net.

Only moments later though Quorn equalised following a misjudgement from Polish goalkeeper Alex Cisak.

Goals from Ricky Sappleton and Eric Odhiambo followed as City took a 3-1 lead before the Quorn Goalkeeper took down Andy King in the box, following a great run to win a penalty for The Foxes, which Sappleton coolly struck home for his second of the night.

King then added a fifth with a great volley from outside the box and then Sappleton getting City's sixth and his hat-trick with only 37 minutes on the clock.

Just before half-time, a great cross by young full-back Luke O'Neill set up King for his second to take Leicester 7-1 up at the break.

At half-time, Nigel Pearson made two changes, bringing Carl Pentney on for Cisak and Billy McKay on for Malenovic.

Quorn pulled one back before a lively looking McKay scored a well taken goal from a Levi Porter cross.

Quorn added two more consolation goals before the final whistle but on the whole a promising City performance!

City now travel to Kettering on Saturday.

City: Cisak (Pentney 45), Rowe-Turner, Garner, Magunda (Burns 68), O'Neill, Porter, A. King, Hellings, Odhiambo, Sappleton (C King 72), Malenovic (McKay 45).

Quorn? I thought that was the veggie 'meat' that tastes like cardboard?!??!

Out of all the textured vegetable protein teams around Quorn are the best. Leicester must be very proud.

I'm not getting carried away by it, but I'm happy with it thats for sure. Don't like quorn myself, not the club the food!
