No Survival in the Lions' Den (as standard)

Four away games played, four away games lost, this one against last year's League One Play-Off winners, Millwall.  Not since Barnsley have Leicester City played well outside of the Walkers Stadium and there is no confidence once the team coach leaves Leicestershire.

Positives
-  fourteen shots (five on target) shows at least some attacking prowess

Negatives
- fourteen shots produced no goals, including two one-on-ones from Dyer and Howard
- a leaky defence is still there, along with the bottom two teams, now we have conceded the most goals in the whole league
- the teams all around us are producing results and, as we lose ground on the play-off places, the teams below us will put us in 20th place if they take their games in hand

The January transfer window is looking more and more like a month of change for Leicester as Sven has a chance to spend the money that the new owners have and a chance to prove his managerial clout that has been shown by good captures of Naughton, Cunningham and Davies (we won't mention Kirkland and Bednar).  Let's hope so or we will be in big trouble come May.
