The Forgotten Man

Chris O`Grady seems to have gone from making a strong claim for a starting place at the beginning of the season to not even being able to make the substitute`s bench against Burnley and Ipswich.

The young striker pushed himself into the starting eleven towards the end of last season and offered something different up front compared to Hume and Fryatt.

He also had a good pre-season where he was one of the most consistent strikers; he linked up well with all three other strikers and managed to score a few goals as well.

Come the first game against Luton and Rob Kelly decided to start with Hume and Fryatt which wouldn`t have surprised most fans after their performances at the end of last season.

With 15 minutes to go and Leicester losing Kelly turned to O`Grady in the hope he would offer something different up front. Unfortunately Leicester ended up losing 2-0 and since that brief sub appearance he has failed to even make the substitute bench for the last two games.

With rumours from within the club suggesting that O`Grady has been give an internal 4 match ban, due to improper conduct. Fans will be hoping that there will be no rift between O`Grady and Kelly if the rumour is true. One thing is for sure, Leicester cannot afford to approach the rest of the season with only 3 strikers available.

He wouldnt make it into my starting XI right now either. Also it wouldnt leave us with only 3 strikers all season if he went - you seem to be forgetting de Vries and Dodds.

I think Kelly has made it clear MDV isnt in his plans and Dodds hasnt got any first team experience
