Mee leads the defenders in Watford draw

12 December 2013 05:05
Ben Mee won the man of the match at the ground last Tuesday for his performance in our 0-0 draw against Watford, and he's done just the same on Clarets Mad, winning both the vote and the player ratings.

On a frustrating night when we failed to score at home in a league game for the first time since March, and only the second time this season home or away, it was always going to be the defenders who generally came out on top and that's exactly what happened.

Mee won the man of the match with 32.6% of the vote, ahead of Jason Shackell who won a 13.0% share. Right back Kieran Trippier was third with 11.4% with striker Sam Vokes, for much of the game a lone and frustrated figure up front, coming fourth with 10.9% of the vote.

It was very much all in defence for the top places in the player ratings. Again Mee was the winner. He had a rating of 7.31 out of 10 and again it was Shackell directly behind him. He took second place with a rating of 7.12. Kevin Long, in for the suspended Michael Duff, was third with a rating of 6.96 and goalkeeper Tom Heaton finished fourth and his rating was 6.81 out of 10.

Mee, therefore, won the maximum ten points towards the Clarets Mad Player of the Year. Shackell collected six points, and there were two points each for Long and Trippier and one point each for Heaton and Vokes.

Those points have seen the top two change places again with Shackell moving back into first place, three points ahead of Vokes. Their lead above the rest has stretched even further.

Voting is currently underway for the November Goal of the Month. You can vote via the front page of the site or the VOTING POLLS page. That vote will run until the end of tomorrow with the Leicester man of the match vote getting underway within an hour of the final whistle on Saturday.
