Marney top man again against former club Hull

05 January 2012 01:50
Dean Marney picked up the man of the match award in the Boxing Day win against Doncaster Rovers and repeated that when his former club Hull City came to town on New Year's Eve.

Marney has just returned to the side recently and these were his first home starts in over three months, and he's more than justified his recall with two outstanding performances.

He narrowly won the man of the match vote in the Doncaster game but was a resounding winner in the Hull win, polling 43.7% of the vote. Martin Paterson, scorer of the only goal, took second place with 17.0% and a 13.0% share of the vote was enough to give David Edgar third place.

Marney was again at the top of the player ratings. He won it this time with a rating of 7.95 out of 10 and that was ahead of the two central defenders with Edgar in second place and Ben Mee third with ratings of 7.86 and 7.48 out of ten respectively.

The result means Marney wins six points in the Clarets Mad Player of the Year Table. There are three points for Edgar, two for Paterson and one for Mee.

From nowhere Marney is now in the top ten with Edgar pushing further up the table and now in sixth place having gone above Ross Wallace.

The man of the match vote for the Leeds game is currently in progress and will run until the end of Friday.

The vote for the Norwich game man of the match will start within an hour of the final whistle at Carrow Road on Saturday.
