Season Five: January Update
It's the start of a new year, and hopefully the start of a successful year for Vauxhall Motors FC. Looking like strong title challengers coming in to the calender change, Paul Hewson's men were looking to take their games advantage and climb to the top.
We started off very well with a vital win over the league leaders, Rotherham. We then dropped points in a goal-less draw against Fleetwood but bounced back with a win over Oldham. We drew with Grimsby before gaining sneaky wins over Burton and Northampton. Southend did hold us to a draw but we proved more powerful than AFC Wimbledon in a 3-2 win. With Euan Smith finally back from injury, he and Obi Anoruo have been firing in the goals for fun. Zac Fagan and Nat Kerr have been as reliable as ever in defence, helping us to four clean sheets this month. My only problem is that I cannot seem to find two reliable wide midfielders. That is where we are struggling at the minute.
Player of the Month
is my player of the month, for a second time this season. He has been a brick wall in defence, helping us to four clean sheets this month. He has also helped us on the goals front, scoring three goals to help us to some vital wins. He has been an amazing signing for us and he will be a stalwart in our defence for years to come. He deservedly won the NPower League Two Player of the Month award.
NPower League Two
We have miraculously climbed to the top of the league table! We have overtaken Bristol Rovers and Rotherham and we have a three point cushion at the top. We also have a game in hand, too. We are the top goal scoring team in the league, with sixty-two goals. Our goals conceded record is improving, compared to others. We have a very good goal difference, which we are looking to improve even further.
We have four games next month, with three of them being away from home. Hopefully we can secure our place at the top of the table with some emphatic wins and push for the league title.
