09 May 2014 01:58
7. Bakary Sako - Wolverhampton Wanderers

It’s been onwards and upwards for Bakary since he scored on his debut for Wolves after joining the club from St Etienne in August 2012. Despite being the subject of transfer speculation last summer, he has continued to give his all to the Wolves’ cause this season, and his consistent performances earned him an international cap with Mali in March of this year.

8. Ben Pringle - Rotherham United

Ben’s North East roots saw him represent famed local clubs Wallsend Boys and Newcastle Star before eventually earning his professional spurs with Derby County after a spell with Ilkeston Town. After a loan spell with Torquay, he signed for Rotherham in June 2011 and has developed into a quality midfielder who is highly valued by the promotion-chasing Millers.

9. David Mooney - Leyton Orient

The former Republic of Ireland Under 23 international has certainly enjoyed a career resurgence since joining the O’s in the summer of 2011 after a three-year spell with Reading for who he was denied a single league appearance. It’s been goals all the way since, and eight in the first ten games of the season led to him winning one of our fans’ player of the month awards.

10. Britt Assombalonga - Peterborough United

Peterborough fans have waved a sad good-bye to a number of goalscoring heroes in recent years – namely Craig Mackail-Smith, Aaron McLean and Dwight Gayle – but they have found a new one in the shape of Britt Assombalonga. The Posh striker has already smashed the 30-goal barrier and supporters are hoping the club will ignore overtures from Premier League predators.

11. Callum Wilson - Coventry City

It has been a remarkable season for Coventry who, but for their ten points deduction, could have been looking at a possible play-off place. They have deservedly beaten the drop against the odds and that has been due in no small part to the goalscoring exploits of Callum Wilson who has rattled in more than 20 goals at a rate of much more than one every two games.

12. Sam Baldock - Bristol City

After making his name with MK Dons, Sam enjoyed a brief spell with West Ham although injury restricted his progress and he opted to join Bristol City in the summer of 2012. His 24 goals for the Robins helped the club avoid a season of pain and he can enjoy his break safe in the knowledge that he finished the campaign as the division’s leading scorer.
