Hotshots - Golden Boot Contenders in Npower League 2

Last updated : 05 February 2011 By Neil Hobbs

No surprises that Millers marksmen Adam Le Fondre leads the pack, closely followed by Lowe (Bury), Donaldson (Crewe), McDonald (Gillingham) and Thomas of Cheltenham Town.  The absence of Mark Richards (Port Vale) Jack Lester (Chesterfield) Harrad (Northampton Town) and Constable & Craddock of Oxford United will however surprise a few although with a good spurt in February they could well stake a late claim.

Our money is on ALF for the league two golden boot with Gigg lane goal machine Lowe runner up, but here is a bookie bashing tip from a Lincoln punter that has got the Imps last 3 match scores spot on.

Although well down the pecking order Ashley Grimes could well be dark horse for the golden boot with 8 goals in his last 9 matches. He has 6 League goals to his name so far suggesting this may be a tall order for him, but  20 goals in all competitions for the season would be a good bet for football punters out there.

That is rare as rocking horse dung in this neck of the woods and last achieved by Simon Yeo.
