Joey chirps (shot stats)

There's been widespread comment on Joey Gudjonsson's outstandingly form for Leicester this season, including his recent emergence as a genuinely dangerous attacker and the (Birmingham) Sunday Mercury's Coca Cola League Championship statistics confirm as much.

Joey is fourth in the Championship shots-on target table with 32, a chart headed by Dean Ashton (Norwich) with 50, Ade Akinbiyi (Burnley) with 35 and Jerome Cameron (Cardiff) on 34.

Not bad company for a man who spent much of the season in defensive midfield until Kisnorbo's arrival allowed him to push forward more.

Little wonder he's the subject of bid speculation even with his contract winding down in the summer.

The statistics also reveal how rampant Leicester were in the 1-1 home draw against Crewe because their match total of 22 shots tied with Norwich as the most in a Championship game on the day.

Their 10 shots on target was also highest, again tieing with Norwich.

Young Leicester full-back Alan Sheehan was at fault for Crewe's goal in the 1-1 draw and was later sent off for two bookable offences but it wasn't all bad.

He too got his name among the statistics because his three shots off target tied as the most by an individual with several other players including team-mate Iain Hume.

With a blocked free kick also being on target his tally of four shots in less than an hour (before his dismissal) testifies to a worthy contribution in attack, certainly for a full-back.

And why did Leicester only draw for all their domination? Having 10 men for the last half-hour didn't help but their 22 shots to one goals ratio was also, sadly, the worst for the day in their League.
