Bartley increases Player of the Year lead

08 November 2011 05:02
Midfielder Marvin Bartley has stretched his lead at the top of the Clarets Mad Player of the Year Table to four points after picking up a maximum six points from our home defeat against Leicester City last Tuesday.

All the points went to the four players currently in the top four places, and it was Bartley who came out very much on top in both the man of the match vote and the message board player ratings.

He won 28.5% of the man of the match vote to give him top place ahead of Charlie Austin who netted 17.3%. It was right back Kieran Trippier who finished in third place with a 16.0% share of the vote.

The player ratings saw the same two in the top two places. Bartley was again the winner with a rating of 6.84 out of 19. Austin was just behind, and his rating was 6.59 whilst this time goalkeeper Lee Grant was in third place with a rating of 6.32 out of 10.

Apart from Bartley's six points, Austin has won four points with both Grant and Trippier getting one point each towards the Clarets Mad Player of the Year. The four of them retain the top four positions with the gap between them now extended to eight points from first to fourth.

Voting is almost at an end for the Bristol City game. You can vote until the end of today for the man of the match, either on the front page or from the VOTING POLLS page, whilst the PLAYER RATINGS can still be left on the message board.

Tomorrow sees the start of the vote for the October Goal of the Month with a choice of six goals.

Below is the result from the Leicester game along with the current Player of the Year Table.
