Grant and Marney come out on top at Leicester
Published : 25 Sep 2012 09:54:18
Burnley were beaten 2-1 at Leicester last Wednesday and it is a game where goalkeeper Lee Grant and midfielder Dean Marney received the plaudits in the man of the match vote and the player ratings.
Such was the low turnout of Burnley fans, and so disappointing was the performance, that this was one of the lowest returns we've had for both the vote and the ratings, but Marney got more than enough votes to win the man of the match, a 30.7% share.
Grant was second with 24.3% and, on his first league start, Brian Stock too third place with 11.4%. A return of 7.9% was enough to give substitute Ben Mee fourth place.
It was the same top three in the player ratings. This time Grant was the winner with a rating of 7.25 out of 10 and that was ahead of Marney and Stock who both had ratings of 7.00. Captain Jason Shackell was third with a rating of 6.25 out of 10.
The result gives both Grant and Marney eight points towards the Clarets Mad Player of the Year. Stock gets five, his first points, and there is one each for Mee and Shackell.
Those points have taken Grant to the top of the table with 30 points but he's just two points ahead of both Austin and Marney who are on 28.
Voting continues until the end of today for the Derby game. You can vote for the man of the match via the front page or the VOTING POLLS page. PLAYER RATINGS can be left on the message board. The Swindon vote will start tomorrow.
Below is the result from the Leicester game and the current player of the year table.
