The Pitmen’s pre-season continued as a Leicester City XI visited The PRG Stadium at Keys Park. A strong opening from the home side saw Brad Wells head home from a corner in the fifth minute, after sending an earlier effort wide of the post. James Hurst’s ferocious shot went narrowly over the crossbar.
In the second half Kieran Wells’ neat finish was ruled offside, while Brad Wells’ deft chip was palmed over by the visiting keeper. In the closing stages the Pitmen defended solidly as the Foxes searched for an equaliser.
