Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-18s drew 1-1 with Leicester City at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre on Saturday.
 
Owen Moore gave Albion the lead in first-half stoppage time, but Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s second-half penalty earned the Foxes a share of the spoils.
 
Albion made a bright start to the match, as Daniel Mandroiu’s close-range volley went just wide.
 
Max Sanders delivered a dangerous free-kick into the box and a glancing header from Archie Davies also went narrowly past the post.
 
David Ajiboye came close just before half-time with an effort that went narrowly off target, before he was played through on goal again, forcing Cameron Yates into a fine save.
 
Albion took a deserved lead when Moore broke the deadlock with a fine strike from a corner, which beat Yates with the aid of a deflection.

Ajiboye had another opportunity just after the re-start when he was played through on goal by Davies, but Yates was on hand to thwart the forward.

However, Leicester earned a share of the spoils just past the hour mark when Rian O’Sullivan was penalised for a challenge on Thakgalo-Khanya Leshabela.
 
Dewsbury-Hall stepped up to take the spot-kick and fired the ball beyond Albion keeper Thomas McGill.

ALBION:
McGill; Moore (Connolly 72), Balogun, Mukena, O’Sullivan; Barker (Hutchinson 72), Sanders (Ferguson 79); Davies, Mandroiu, Garcia; Ajiboye.
