ANYTIME NOTEBOOK magician Gavin Horsfall (@GHorsfall) delivers his expert opinion on where the value resides in the Championship Top Goalscorer market.
Championship | Top Goalscorer
Huddersfield fans should be quietly optimistic about looking up the league instead of down as David Wagner gets an opportunity to host a full pre-season and sign his own players.
Nakhi Wells (33/1 Ladbrokes) has progressed in each of his two seasons since stepping up from League One and scored 14 of his 18 goals last year under Wagner’s tutelage.
Only two players registered more shots at goal than Wells last year in a side set-up to create chances. In Aaron Mooy the Terriers look to have an assist machine ready to supply Wells with the chances he needs to reach 20+ goals.
Nigel Pearson is the latest manager to try and get Derby promoted. Recruitment has been slow but he’s set his stall out to give everyone a fresh start.
Tom Ince (66/1 Bet365) looks likely to spend more game time through the middle in behind either Darren Bent or Chris Martin if pre-season is anything to go by.
The 24-year old registered the most shots of any Derby player last season on his way to a third Championship campaign that has seen him reach double-figures in goals.
Meanwhile, 32-year-old Bent is more than worthy of a saver at 50/1 (Coral) if Pearson gives him the fresh start he needs to recapture some of the form he showed when he joined the club.
