Austin and Edgar share Leicester spoils
By Tony Scholes
Updated Tuesday, 24th April 2012
Charlie Austin and David Edgar took the top places in the man of the match vote and the player ratings last week from our 0-0 draw against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
It was Austin who came out on top in the man of the match vote with a 27.5% share and that was ahead of goalkeeper Lee Grant who, in keeping a clean sheet, was second with 21.5%. The two central defenders, Michael Duff and Edgar ,came third each with 11.4% of the vote.
Edgar was third in the vote but was top of the player ratings, winning it with a rating of 7.27 out of 10. The clean sheet was clearly a major factor here with Grant again second with a rating of 7.18 and Duff coming third with a rating of 7.09 out of 10.
Edgar and Grant both win four points towards the player of the year. There are three points for Austin and two for Duff.
Those points have seen Grant edge a point above Trippier at the top of the table with just the two games to go, but that could change after the Blackpool game.
Tomorrow, and for three days, will see the vote for the March Goal of the Month.
The result from the Leicester game and the current player of the year table are below.
