Mee and Austin share the honours in Millwall draw
Published : 04 Oct 2012 16:41:20
A late equaliser gave Millwall a point at Turf Moor last Saturday in a game where Ben Mee, back in the side at left back, and striker Charlie Austin were considered our best two players.
Mee won a recall a week earlier at Derby in the left back position, played as part of a back five at Swindon and was back at left back for this game. His performance won him the man of the match with just over half of the vote.
HIs 50.7% share was a long way ahead of Austin, who came second with 17.6% with Junior Stanislas taking third place with 8.8% and goalkeeper Lee Grant getting a 6.2% share to win fourth place.
The same four players were the top four in the player ratings too. This time Austin just pipped Mee for first place. He had a rating of 7.68 out of 10 with Mee's rating just below on 7.63.
Third and fourth places were the same. Stanislas was third with a rating of 7.22 and Grant's rating was 6.90 out of 10.
The result wins eight points each for Austin and Mee towards the Clarets Mad Player of the Year. Stanislas got four points with two for Grant.
That allowed Austin to stretch his lead at the top even further. He's now 16 points ahead of second place Grant with only Dean Marney close to being in striking distance of second place.
Mee's points move him up to joint fifth place and Stanislas is now tenth having moved up three places.
