Match Review: Leicester City 3-0 Leyton Orient


This was no challenge at all. City brushed aside the O’s to move (temporarily at least) five points clear at the top of League One and one step closer to promotion. Nine more wins should see City back in the Championship. The countdown continues…

Here are some numbers…

3 – The Foxes defence restricted the Orient to just three efforts on goal, the fewest any side have managed for 11 games. With just three goals conceded in six games City are back to imperious defensive form with which they began the season.

3 – The number of games Matty Fryatt has gone without a goal. Amazingly this equals his longest dry spell of the season. Previously Fryatt had gone three league games without strikes against Oldham, Walsall and Northampton. He followed the drought with four goals in two games; Yeovil beware.

61% – It wasn’t quite the staggering 73% of the ball Arsenal managed at home to Bolton on Saturday, but for the eighth game in nine City held more of the ball than their opponents. Only MK Dons on the opening day have taken a greater share of possession at the Walkers Stadium this season.
