Leicester Lions' resolve impressed Alan Jones

Leicester co-promoter Alan Jones says the dramatic home win over Newcastle was a firm indication of their progress in their second Premier League season.

Jones said: "We are continually measuring ourselves in all aspects of what we do and the result was another gauge of how the team is evolving.

"Twelve months ago we would have capitulated when coming up against strong-scoring reserves.

"But there is a new resolve that runs through the current team."
