Leicester City and Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho's goals drought continues after the striker failed to score in yet another Europa Conference League encounter.

The 2016 Premier League champions could only manage a one all draw when they welcomed Jose Mourinho's Roma at the King Power stadium for the first leg of Europe's third tier competition on Thursday night.

The 25-year-old Super Eagles striker has only managed a single goal and an assist in six appearances for 'The Foxes' in the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.

His only goal in the competition came against Stade Rennais on March 10 in a game Leicester City won by 2-0 against the French club.

This season is one to forget for the Nigerian international as he has netted only seven times in 38 games across all competitions.

Leicester City faces a daunting task when they take on Jose Mourinho's men at Stadio Olimpico in Rome for the second leg.
