Matty Fryatt was reunited with former Foxes manager Nigel Pearson when joining the Tigers in January 2011.
Signing from Leicester to help boost the Tigers' options up front, Matty didn't take long to prove his credentials. Making his debut off the bench in a bank holiday clash against Portsmouth, the front-man found the back of the net with virtually his first touch to send City on their way to a vital three points away from home.
Matty's career began at Walsall, where after graduating through the youth ranks he made his debut in the League Cup against Bolton Wanderers in September 2003. Sent out on loan to Carlisle during the same season, a 17-year-old Matty scored his first goal in senior football as the Cumbrians overcame Boston 2-1 at Brunton Park.
Soon forcing his way into the reckoning at Walsall, Matty became a prized asset, scoring 20 goals over the course of the 2004/05 League One campaign, including a first professional hat-trick in the Saddlers 4-3 win against Huddersfield in January 2005.
Scoring a further 15 goals the following season, the young striker became the transfer target of several League clubs, making the move to Leicester City in January 2006 for an undisclosed fee. Matty got off to a flying start to his Foxes career, scoring three goals in his first four games, and ending up with six in 19 as Leicester finished mid-table in the midst of managerial upheaval.
After failing to find the back of the net with the same regularity over the course of the following two seasons, Matty's most prolific campaign to date coincided with the arrival of manager Nigel Pearson in the summer of 2008. The hit-man scored an impressive 32 goals in all competitions during the Foxes' League One promotion season - with 20 of those goals coming before Christmas. Becoming the first Leicester player in 42 years to achieve this feat, Matty also set a club record for scoring consecutive hat-tricks.
Starting the 2009/10 Championship season where he left off, Matty scored eight goals in his first ten games, though his season was severely disrupted after suffering a broken jaw against Doncaster Rovers in February 2010.
Matty was the Tigers' top scorer in the 2011/12 season with 16 goals.
