For 70 minutes or so the SkyBet price of 5/1 for a Walsall victory was looking remarkably good, thankfully Aleksander Tunchev had other ideas. Despite slipping to third, Leicester remain two points off top spot with a game in hand. If you fancy a hyperbolic statement, these two successive draws constitute City’s worst run of the season so far.
There are some more realistic statistics below…
6 –The number of goals Leicester have scored from set pieces this season, that’s 30% of City’s total for 2008/09.
6 – The number of games Leicester have gone undefeated. This is Leicester’s best undefeated sequence since an 8 match unbeaten run under Rob Kelly in 2006. It is not, however, the best record in League One. Scunthorpe have now gone 10 games without defeat.
19 – The percentage of shots with which Andy King has scored. Steve Howard has scored with 7% of his attempts on goal.
