Marney edges out Stock at Hull

29 November 2012 06:37
The two midfielders, Dean Marney and Brian Stock, are both in a run of good form right now and once again they've led the way in the man of the match vote and the player ratings from our 1-0 win at Hull last Saturday.

Marney returned to the KC, scored the winning goal and wound up some of the home fans, and had one of his best all round games of the season. It was certainly reflected in the man of the match vote where he polled 45.4%.

Ross Wallace, another who played really well and set up the goal for Marney, came second with 14.5% of the vote with Stock taking third place with a 9.9% share and Jason Shackell coming in fourth with 6.9% of the vote.

Stock was the player ratings winner, and for the fourth time in the last five games, missing out only in the win against Leeds. He scored a rating of 7.75 out of 10 and that edged out both Marney and Shackell who shared second place with 7.63. Michael Duff came in fourth, and his rating was 7.50 out of 10.

That result means a further eight points for Dean Marney towards the Clarets Mad Player of the Year. Stock is just behind with seven points and there are four points for Shackell, three for Wallace and one for Duff.

Charlie Austin still holds a big lead at the top of the player of the year table. His 82 points remains 19 ahead of second place Lee Grant, but right behind Grant now are the two midfielders. Stock is just four behind on 59 points and Marney a further four points behind with 55.

Voting is still running for the Barnsley game. You can vote for the man of the match on the front page of the site or via the VOTING POLLS page and PLAYER RATINGS can be left on the message board.

That will end on Friday with the next man of the match vote coming up on Sunday after the local derby.
