This season's 'Hooper'. I was a real sceptic when we first went in for him when he was at Halifax...didn't see the quality.  But he's become a bloody excellent player by hard work, determination and learning the game. 
 

I doff my cap to him and apologies for my scepticism.

 

Absolutely essential to the team. 
 

And as good an 'arse' as Hoops!!!

His retention of the  ball when getting it sometimes at "Head" height is superb, thought he was unlucky not to get a pen first half with what looked like a blatant shove in the back

A good honest proper old type centre forward. No namby pamby diving. It seems he would rather scrap for the ball and get a chance of a goal than doing a Tom Daley. 

Holds the ball on his chest and willing to play in others around him. Very unselfish player and seems to be able to go on the full 90 minutes.

Agreed he was absolutely terrific today, a Shearer-like performance. His first touch, chest control, awareness and hold-up play were all top notch, plus a goal and a couple of very near misses. 
 

Close thing between him and Bannan for Motm
