Leicester made it two wins out of two in pre-season after they came from behind to beat Cheltenham 2-1.

Brendan Rodgers was without Ayoze Perez and Khanya Leshabela due to injury.

Leicester once again lined-up in a 4-3-3, but this time played the stronger XI in the second half rather than the first. Other than Harry Maguire, who started the game despite being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.

Cheltenham’s Luke Varney opened the scoring after the experienced forward beat young right-back Vontae Daley-Campball in the air and headed past Danny Ward.

The Foxes came close to equalising before half-time with efforts from Wes Morgan and Kelechi Iheanacho causing problems for the opposition keeper. But couldn’t quite break the Cheltenham back-five.

Rodgers played a fully changed team in the second half, as he had done against Scunthorpe on Tuesday.

Leicester were playing their way through the Cheltenham defence with more ease in the second half, as the stronger XI came on.

After threatening frequently, Leicester finally got the equaliser when Youri Tielemans pressed well to win back possession and then played a precise ball through to Vardy who finished clinically.

Leicester took the lead soon after, with a excellent ball from Nampalys Mendy to find the run of Marc Albrighton who coolly took it around the keeper and placed it in the net.
