Leicester’s fourth consecutive league win makes this their best league run since April 2003. If City beat Oldham in two weeks time, they’ll match the five game winning streak which virtually sealed promotion in 2002/03. The Foxes will stay top of League One with a game in hand unless Scunthorpe United beat Crewe by three clear goals next weekend.
Here are some other pleasing numbers…
7 – It took Leicester until the 28th January to record seven league victories last season, a tally which took so long to reach not least because of City’s 13 draws up to that point. The Foxes are flying. This start of 22 points from nine games is identical to the 2002/03 campaign.
8 – Matty Fryatt is League One’s joint second top scorer. As much as this blog has critiqued his play, he can’t be denied praised for the goals he has scored.
3 – Once again it appears Nigel Pearson got his half-time team talk right. Leicester have gone in level at the break on four occasions this season and have won three. They’ve now scored seven goals in the first 10 minutes after the break this season.
