Midweek Round-up

Gillingham made it two away wins in three days, and moved into the play-off places with a win at Port Vale on Tuesday night. Marc Richards put Vale 1-0 up but the Gills staged a second half come-back with goals from Denis Oli, Adam Miller, and a Simeon Jackson penalty.

Elsewhere, Exeter grabbed a priceless win at rivals Dag & Red. Craig McAllister scored twice as the Grecians leapfrogged the Daggers. And Aldershot fell further behind the pack with a 2-2 draw at home to Notts County.

Top 10 Strikers in League 2?

League 2 possesses a lot of good strikers, and here is my top 10.

Jamie Ward1) Jamie Ward – Joint top scorer in League 2 this season with 11 goals, and attracting a lot of interest from the higher divisions.

 

 

Andy Bishop

2) Andy Bishop – Consistently a great striker in this division for Bury. Always seems to score against your team!

 

 

Peter Thorne3) Peter Thorne – Tops the charts with Jamie Ward – deadly in the air.

 

 

 
Grant Holt4) Grant Holt – Signed for £170,000 from Nottingham Forest, the Shrewsbury striker has netted more goals in all competitions than anyone else.

 

Simeon Jackson5) Simeon Jackson – The Gills shelled out £150,000 for Jackson, whose pace has seen him net 7 goals this season.

 
jack_lester6) Jack Lester – Experienced 33-year old who finished 3rd in Europe’s ‘goals to games’ ratio last season, behind Fernando Torres and Cristiano Ronaldo.

 

 
Ben Strevens7) Ben Strevens – Has been a revelation since he joined Dagenham from Barnet.

 

 
Billy Clarke8.) Billy Clarke – Skillful youngster who was on-loan from Ipswich before having to return early because of injury. Has grabbed 9 goals for Darlington this year.

 

 
Luke Rodgers9) Luke Rodgers – I find it astounding that Rodgers has not been a regular at Vale Park this season. Quick and a good finisher, no wonder a move to Yeovil is on the cards.

 

 
Charlie MacDonald10) Charlie MacDonald – Scored just one goal for Southend last season, but has proven he is a top goalscorer with 7 already this year.
