Leicester City 3 -0 Notts County
Posted on: Sat 21 Jul 2007

Leicester City put on a show in front of their own fans at the Walkers Stadium on Saturday as they overcame Notts County 3-0 in a pre-season friendly.

New signing Stephen Clemence, Iain Hume and Matty Fryatt got the goals as the Foxes made it four wins from four ahead of their trip up to Scotland next week.

Shaun Newton just failed to connect with James Chambers' teasing cross from the left inside two minutes.

At the other end Jason Lee headed wide a minute later before Conrad Logan impressively palmed away Myles Weston's shot from distance on 11 minutes.

And it was the hosts who opened the scoring in the 18th minute when Clemence dispossessed Adam Tann on the half way line before running through unaided and slotting the ball past Kevin Pilkington for the opener.

Richard Stearman's low cross was hacked clear moments later.

Hume was only denied by a fine save from Pilkington on 29 minutes before the Canadian international shot narrowly wide soon after.

Mark de Vries headed just wide in the 34th minute from Radostin Kishishev's hanging cross.

Hume doubled the Foxes advantage on 40 minutes when he latched on to De Vries' through ball, rounded Pilkington before placing the ball with his left foot into the vacant net.

Hume tested Pilkington from distance in the 42nd minute then former Fox Lawrie Dudfield relaced the injured Myles Weston.

Neil MacKenzie shot over the bar just before half-time then Logan got down well to deny Dudfield from the right-hand angle.

Joe Mattock replaced Jonathan Hayes and Jimmy Nielsen came on for Logan at the start of the second period.

For Notts County, Rob Austin replaced Gary Silk.

Tann headed over from Jay Smith's cross on 49 minutes before Nielsen gathered comfortably from MacKenzie's low drive.

Pilkington thwarted Clemence in the 57th minute after a pin-point through ball by De Vries.

City boss Martin Allen made a treble change a minute later with Clemence, Kishishev and Hume making way for James Wesolowski, Fryatt and Sergio Hellings.

Stef Frost and Hector Sam then replaced Lee and Andy Parkinson on the hour before Smith curled his free-kick wide of the target.

City made it 3-0 on 67 minutes when substitute Fryatt headed home from close range following Newton's cross to the back post.

Paul Mayo replaced Austin McCann on 70 minutes before Ricky Sappleton and Eric Odhiambo came on for De Vries and Newton.

Chambers helped preserve his side's clean sheet when he diverted Dudfield's effort on to the bar a minute later.

Fryatt just failed to connect with Mattock's cross-cum-shot in the 72nd minute.

Pilkington and MacKenzie came off for Tim Sandercombe and Junior Mendes on 74 minutes before Sappleton's downward header was saved.

DJ Campbell, fresh from his £2.1million move from Birmingham yesterday, replaced Stearman 13 minutes from time.

Campbell made an immediate impact when he twisted and turned Mayo inside the box but could not apply the finishing touch.

Matt Austin came on for Smith in the dying minutes then competition winner Lee Smith grabbed his moment of fame when he replaced James Chambers on 89 minutes and was handed the captain's armband.

De Vries was very fast and sharp - could edge out Hume for a starting slot alongside DJC.

Clemence and Chambers were also impressive. Sappleton looked awesome for a 17 yr old. The likeness to Heskey is uncanny. Tried to kick their goalie into Row Z!

If that's true, that's the biggest miracle since Lazarus!

I'd say the bit about De Vries is a bit over the top.

But to be fair he played very well, showed some nice touches and held the ball up well didn't really get an opportunity on goal.
Clemence and Kishishev looked good in the centre. N'gotty looked quality at the back and you can tell he has some class about him despite being 37.
Joe Mattock also looked good when he came on.
Everyone played well to be honest, Johnny Hayes was not as impressive as he was last week though.
Good workout and Notts County were a decent opposition who tried to play some good football.

MDV played some good balls through to Hume to give him a chance on goal and am pretty sure he can claim at least one 'assist'.

I think the fact that MDV started alongside Hume rather than Fryatt and played most of the game shows that MA certainly thinks he is in contention.

I assume the ones we saw today will be the squad going to Scotland.

Mandaric also said there possibly two or three more signings to come!

Have you ever thought of doing stand up comedy?

Hume had a good game today and took his goal superbly, he has scored, i believe, in every pre season game he has played in, Devries on the other hand hasn't and doesnt even look like scoring.

Best player on the pitch today was chambers, this lad looks like a superb signing; he did everything a good left back should, great deep runs forward and never caught out.


Weso did well when he came on.


Worst performance was from shaun newton who im affraid does not understand the meaning of possitioning.

Most exciting for the future (cant tell from one game i know) was eric odihambo, looked very dangerous.

Did Newton play left or right?

If that is the case I'd be inclined to play him ahead of DeVries.

Very impressed with Sappleton and Odhiambo. Thought Chambers was superb. Clemence and Kishishev were very good in the middle. Still not sure about Nielsen and Hellings, both very average at best.
