WLB Season Preview 2016/17 | League Two | Top Goalscorer


ANYTIME NOTEBOOK magician Gavin Horsfall (@GHorsfall) delivers his expert opinion on where the value resides in the League Two Top Goalscorer market.

League Two | Top Goalscorer

Joe Pigott (66/1 William Hill) should get more than enough game time for Cambridge to outrun his long odds in League Two.

Boss Shaun Derry is spot on when he says the former Charlton man can thrive at a club he can call home – Pigott’s scored goals wherever he’s gone on loan; 21 in 50-odd starts across the last two years, including in League One with Southend.

The 22-year-old averaged 2.7 shots-per-game last year and he can flourish under a manager that likes his teams on the front foot.

Piero Mingoia put in the most crosses of anyone in League Two last season – he turns up at The Abbey Stadium this year to the benefit of all Cambridge forwards.

One person leaving The Abbey Stadium is Jimmy Spencer (66/1 SkyBet) who showed glimpses last year that he was back on track after missing almost an entire season following a knee injury.

Notts County under Ricardo Moniz probably wasn’t doing him any favours but a move to Cambridge in January saw him score six goals in 18 and he could thrive as the focal point of a Plymouth side that once again looks set-up to create chances going forward.

After a misspent youth spent sneaking into Midland’s racetracks with his Dad without paying, Gavin caught the betting bug early. While the betting landscape may have changed, it’s still all about solving puzzles and although edges have got smaller, there are still profitable angles for punters lower down the football pyramid. When not watching his beloved Coventry City, he’s watching games in Leagues 1 and 2, on the lookout for goalscoring defenders, penalty taking midfielders and in-form strikers for his Anytime Notebook.
