POWER RANKINGS 22/23 NO.2 – THE TOP TEN

POWER RANKINGS

Here are the top 10 current Gulls players as voted by the Yellow Army

1) DEAN MOXEY – UP 1

If the young players need an example to look to for inspiration, then look no further than Dean Moxey! The Mox has been fantastic so far this season, a real rock at the back and looking fitter than ever.

2) RHYS LOVETT – NEW ENTRY

Straight into the Power Rankings second position for Rhys! It’s a credit to how well the goalkeeper has done since Mark Halstead’s injury, making a number of saves at Roots Hall to keep the home team at bay. Well done keep.

3) ALI OMAR – UP 3

Is this a period when Ali Omar turns from rough diamond to indispensable defensive rock? Well the signs have been good, he’s full of battle, aggression and defensive resolve. Good lad Ali, let’s hope this form continues.

4) WILL GOODWIN – UP 1

Goodwin must have been cursing his luck earlier in the season, as the woodwork denied him a couple of goals. Therefore, Saturday’s very fortunate deflected shot was a deserved reward for his whole-hearted effort and determination.

5) MARK HALSTEAD – DOWN 4

Two keepers in the top 10 and one striker? That kind of sums up our season so far. It sounds like Mark Halstead’s injury wasn’t too severe and he’ll be ready to take the field again soon…if he can snatch the gloves back from Rhys Lovett!

6) ROSS MARSHALL – NEW ENTRY

Early season cards and indecision for Marshall didn’t bode well for his season. But he doesn’t seem like someone whose head will drop and last week’s header against Woking was a nice moment. Him and Ali threw themselves at everything last weekend.

7) BRETT MCGAVIN – DOWN 4

The midfield area hasn’t been in good shape in recent games, and that’s reflected in this top 10. I think we all pinned our hopes on McGavin being our difference maker, and he’s struggling to live up to it. But early days for him, and better times to come I’m sure.

8) DAN MARTIN – NEW ENTRY

The left wing hasn’t delivered much for the Gulls this season, meaning the return of Dan Martin over the last couple of games has been very welcome. Can he rediscover last winters dynamic form? Fingers crossed.

9) TOM LAPSLIE – DOWN 5

Tom Lapslie’s season hasn’t properly started yet. Injured in pre-season and then injured as sub at Maidstone, so far, so frustrating. Tom’s an important player, but fitness wise he’ll need to be managed carefully if we are to get the best of the midfielder this season.

10) BEN WYATT – DOWN 2

Ben Wyatt is a rather typical old school full back, who is happy defending and doing a steady job in his own half, but struggles for composure up the other end. With Dan Martin available, it remains to be seen whether Ben will retain his place in the team.
