Jacob Blyth nets double for Leicester City Development squad
A second-half double from Jacob Blyth gave Leicester City's development squad a 2-1 victory over Sheffield United – but they had to come from behind to do it.
A strong City side, which included six first-team squad members, had been in control of the first half at Belvoir Drive and had created a host of chances without taking them.
They were punished just before half time when Diego Di-Girolamo put the visitors ahead from a corner.
But Steve Beaglehole's side continued to create chances in the second period, and it was youngster Blyth who netted twice.

Marko Futacs, who scored his first league goal for City in Saturday's 6-0 demolition of Ipswich Town after coming on as a substitute, partnered Blyth in attack and was the provider for the first.
The second came from a cross from Paul Gallagher, who was given a run-out on the right of midfield, with Jesse Lingard on the left and Liam Moore demonstrating further his versatility with a midfield role alongside Matty James.
