Average Player Ratings V Dartford (H)
Alan Power picked up on where he left off after his short injury absence with a quality score of 7.64 to leapfrog Paul Farman in the overall standings and stake a claim as the best player of the season so far. The Irishman's resurgence in form from December onwards has remarkably put Power into contention as City's best player of the 2012/13 campaign, despite woeful early season form that saw him record marks of less than 4 against Macclesfield and Ebbsfleet. Having gained the best average scores in December and January, Power has proven an integral part of Holdsworth's ailing imps and his performance on Saturday was described by Vital members as 'excellent', and one that 'got the Imps moving forward.'
Second place this week went to Lincoln's ice man Colin Larkin (6.91), who netted an 89th minute penalty to win the game for City. The former Hartlepool forward consigned leading scorer Jamie Taylor to the bench for this one and eventually rewarded David Holdsworth's faith by securing all three points. Posters noted that he 'worked hard', and showed 'great composure'. It was the other front man who took third, with towering front man Vadaine Oliver taking a score of 6.73.
At the other end of the spectrum and Adam Smith still hasn't convinced City fans that he's been a worthwhile signing. The winger took a paltry score of 3.18 this week, quite staggeringly bad when you consider that Jake Sheridan was sent off in the first half and scored 5.45. Several posters noted that fiery winger Jake Jones probably deserves a start over the ex-Mansfield man.
