Matty Fryatt On Leicester City's Blue Army

Matty Fryatt hails Leicester City's Blue Army as he speaks of life in League One. The Foxes striker also quashes rumours about his summer weight loss!

There's been quite a bit in the press about me losing weight for the new season. The way things have been written it was as if I was on a binge all of last season! But I wasn't overweight and I didn't go on a diet as such. I think I said I'd lost weight in an interview and it was taken out of context a bit. I wanted to look after myself and train as best as I could over the summer, then focus on our games. My attitude and performances have shown that in pre-season.

I got two goals in our opener against MK Dons last weekend and it was a relief to get off the mark so early on. It was important for the team, the club and the fans that we got off to a good start to begin putting relegation behind us.

I never expected to see so many fans at the game, but there were almost 24,000 there. It was staggering. I don't know what the other players were thinking but when I was looking around I couldn't believe my eyes. The atmosphere was great and there weren't many spare seats. The fans made their contribution and as a result the whole team was lifted. It all helps and to have them behind us, no matter what's gone on, is really touching.
