Leon sets post-war club record

Leon Smith set a post-war club record yesterday as he scored in his 7th consecutive game, and is the first to do so since Jock Ellison in the 1938-39 season.

The only other players to achieve this feat are Arthur Humphreys, who also scored in 7 straight games in the 1914-15 season, and Oscar Reinke, who holds the club record, by scoring in 8 consecutive games in the 1925-26 season.

Therefore, if Leon scores in the next game he plays in, he will equal the all-time club record.

Leon was the first player to score in six in a row since Iain Dowie achieved the feat in the 1988-89 season, just the second since Laurie Churchill in 1965-66. The only other players to score in six consecutive games are Danny Lakey (1964-65), Tommy Lawrence (1957-58), Travers Day (1922-23) and Cecil Wise (1921-22).
