Leicester City’s young Nigerian winger Layton Ndukwu was delighted to net the winner as the Foxes beat Kelvin Etuhu’s Carlisle United 1-0 at Brunton Park in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday.
The former England U17 international registered his first goal of the season in the 19th minute, when he slid the ball home off an assist from Josh Eppiah.
”We are a young side but we have been working hard tactically on the training field and tonight it paid off so it’s a great result,” Ndukwu told LCFC TV.
”We did well to pull it off. I was quite direct today, I did well with the ball, got myself a goal and it was a great result.”
Asked how difficult it was to face a League Two side, Ndukwu replied : ”It is tough physically. We want to progress in our careers and reach the first team.
”It’s a good benchmark to see how well we can do.”
Layton Ndukwu was in action for 67 minutes against the Blue & White army, teammate Calvin Ughelumba came on in the 71st minute while Kelvin Etuhu watched proceedings from the bench for the entirety of the match.
