Who will top the scoring charts?

Who will top the scoring charts?

The results are in and it says a lot about the forwards that started the season at the club that the winner of the poll was a player who has only played a handful of games for the Seasiders.
Paul Dickov picked up 44% of your votes after his flying start in a Tangerine shirt. Five goals in as many games after his arrival from Manchester City on loan helped the Tangerines to wins over Leicester and Charlton as well as a valuable point at Hull.
Sharing 18% of your votes were Kaspars Gorkss and Ben Burgess. The Latvian has been immense at the back for the Mighty this season and his goals have been a revelation. A total of eight goals means Kaspars leads the scoring chart and could be the surprise golden boot winner for Pool this year.
With Gary Taylor-Fletcher on five for this season and looking in good form recently, despite niggling injury concerns, he may yet have a say in the outcome of top scorer.
Today's new acquisition Grant Holt could do a Dickov and begin an assault on the goalscoring charts. Though it is more likely to be Steve McPhee, with four goals to his name, threatening Gorkss to take the prize.
With no immenent return to the first team for Dickov on the cards the onus is on Burgess and co to put pressure on Kaspars for the golden boot.
With Colchester and Scunthorpe looking all but doomed to the drop this week we ask you which team will join them in League One next season.
