PositionDefender/Centre back

After his heroics of the previous season, Matt had a quiet campaign for Leicester City in 2000-01 by his own high standards. He was again a regular for the Foxes, providing a solid presence in the centre of defence but the goals seemed to dry up and he netted only twice.

Oddly, this was the year in which Matt actually notched his first international goal against San Marino in October, and he also managed to hit the woodwork against the same opposition in the return fixture at Hampden Park in March.

A groin problem picked up in that game rather affected his form during the closing weeks before a knee ligament injury suffered at Derby County on Easter Monday brought his season to a premature close.

Matt announced his retirement in January 2005 due to a knee injury.
