McGleish spear-heads Wycombe's promotion bid

Wycombe see themselves in a very similar position to where they were last season at this stage.

Eighth in the table and on the fringe of the play-off's.

Jermaine Easter was in inspired form last term as the Chairboys targeted promotion, but this season it is Scott McGleish who is stealing all the headlines.
McGleish...Still got it


The 33-year-old front man has six goals to his name already this season including two against Grimsby on Saturday in their 3-0 win at Adams Park.

With Easter's big reputation in the division and the arrival of John Sutton in the summer, McGleish was expected to take a back seat role, but his goals so far see him spear-heading Wycombe's early season form.

The Chairboy's haven't lost at home since the opening day and look a good bet for the play-off's.

And, with McGleish bang in form, they shouldn't be short of goals.

The marksmen arrived at Adams Park in January from Northampton Town where he scored 54 goals in 132 club appearances.

A spell at Layer Road saw him grab another 45 goals plus seven during his days at Barnet.

Past the century mark for career nettings, McGleish has still got it, as well as vast experience at this level.

His performance on Saturday, where he scored a brace and set up another shows his importance even so late on in his career.

He is a vital asset to the Blues promotion charge, and in this form there won't be many players with more goals than him come May.
