Leicester Match Ratings

Recommended Posts

Warner 7 - some vital saves and catches in the air. Wish he''d come for the ball more often though.

Colin 7 - good game on his return.

Dublin 7 - leading from the front or the back he is one good legacy from Worthy''s dying days

Shackell 7 - Steady but could improve on distribution

Hughes 6 - Improved in the 2nd half but as per Colchester he can''t put a decent cross into the box. Overhits or miskicks every time.

Eagle 5 - Weak and lightweight but did improve as the game progressed.

Spillane 6 - Not impressed but potential.

Etuhu 8 - The version of Dickson I prefer!

Croft 7 - Hard running but lacks the end product.

Martin 7 - Was better in midfield when he dropped back to replace Spillane. In fact I would say his midfield performance was better than any i''ve seen from Fotheringham.

Huckerby 7 Denied a blatant penalty. Worked hard throughout.

Thanks for that Fillet - having just come back from prague it is good to get some judgement on what looked like a good win.  You gave colin a 7 - he must have nearly been MOTM then! [;)]

It does seem we need more cover in depth across the team though as beyond the first 11 we remain lightweight.

Well i actually thought Eagle played OK (better than Spillane), the only midfielder to impress much was Etuhu.

Warner: 8 - Couple of cracking saves in the second half to keep us in the game. Commanded his area well and his kicking wasn''t too bad either. Sign him up.

Drury: No time to assess. Wonder why he started when he clearly wasn''t well.

Shackell: 6 - Some shaky moments in the first half and his distribution from the back was poor. However he did well with Dublin to restrict Leicester to only one goal.

Dublin: 7 - Tower of strength at the back and made some great tackles and interceptions. Was the main reason we didn''t concede a second.

Colin: 7 - Not a bad game on his return. Made some good tackles and tried to get forward too.

Hughes: 5 - Tried hard but just lacks quality. Put over some dreadful crosses which floated out of play and gave the ball away too much. Improved in the second half but still nothing to write home about.

Etuhu: 7 - Pretty good performance from Dixon. Put in lots of effort and made some great tackles. Looked interested and needed to be with no Safri or Fotheringham.

Spillane: 5 - Looked out of depth but enough to show that he has potential. One great turn in the box which led to a corner. Needs more games!

Croft: 7 - Ran his heart out and got forward well. Still needs to work on his final ball but was a useful outlet from defence. One cracking shot which Logan did well to palm behind.

Huckerby: 7 - Quiet first half although he should have scored with a lob over the keeper. Great in the second half. Should have had a penalty, won a penalty and ran the Leicester defence ragged at times. Quality.

Martin: 6 - Not one of his better games up front. The spark he had in his first few games doesn''t seem to be there at the moment. Looked good when he dropped back into midfield though and certainly didn''t let himself down overall. These games can only do him good!


Eagle: 6 - Looked light weight in the first half and his crossing was poor. Corners and general play improved in the second half. Needs to toughen up but like Spillane, the time on the pitch will have done him good!

Earnie: 8 - Great to see him back and he looked so pleased to be out there. Changed the game and scored the penalty. Fantastic. 20 still on for the season??

Renton: 6 - Not long on the pitch but good to see another youngster given a game. Looks big and strong and full of enthusiasm. Glad Grant gave him the game so he broke the youngest player record!
