Jo Kuffour’s strike on the hour would have been no laughing matter for City fans if The Fryarstarter hadn’t managed to bag his third and fourth goals of the week. Matty Fryatt’s winner in stoppage time put City in touching distance of top spot once again. A win at home next Tuesday to Yeovil Town, recent conquerors of Oldham, will put the Foxes back on top of League One. Just two points separate the top five in a title race that is beginning to look very competitive.
Here are some numbers…
1 – This was Leicester’s first win after being behind this season, they now leave behind a group of only five clubs in League One yet to achieve this feat.
6 – The number of goals Leicester have scored in the last five minutes of League matches. Despite this tally, they’ve only picked up four points from losing positions this season.
12 – Matty Fratt’s four goals this week now place him joint second in the League One hostshots table. Ricky Lambert leads the way with 15, whilst Craig Mackail-Smith’s 12 goals have helped Peterborough Utd to a run of 11 games unbeaten.
19,747 – City’s average home gate this season. The Walkers Stadium has been 61% full for home games so far. Leicester are one of only three sides in League One with an average attendance in five figures.
