Leicester needed penalties to see off Lincoln, and looking again at the video it’s clear the players care little about progress in this competition. The Foxes are now in the last 16 of the JPT, or the Quarter-Finals of the Northern Section of the draw. Even that statement is enough to make eyes roll.
So when will all this be over? Before the Hartlepool game Foxblogger looked at the final league positions of finalists in the JPT. For comparison, here are the exit points in the JPT for the eight sides automatically promoted from League One in the last four seasons.
Luton Town – Southern Section 1st Round
Hull City – Northern Section 1st Round
Southend Utd – Southern Section 1st Round
Colchester Utd – Southern Section Final
Scunthorpe Utd – Northern Section 2nd Round
Bristol City – Southern Section Final
Swansea City – Southern Section Final
Nottingham Forrest – Northern Section 1st Round
Make of that what you will.
