Daniel Bentley takes Fanscore prize following Wolves defeat

Goalkeeper voted Man of the Match, with Fullers, after reverse at Molineux

3 January 2018

Daniel Bentley's performance in a losing cause against Wolverhampton Wanderers last night saw him named the Fanscore Man of the Match with Fuller's.

The home side, who lead the way in the Sky Bet Championship, could find no way past Dan in the first-half as he made fine saves from Leo Bonatini and Diogo Jota. The Bees stopper continued that form after the interval but was powerless to prevent Ruben Neves curling Wolves into the lead shortly after the break. Barry Douglas slammed home a second less than two minutes later and Jota completed the scoring late on. 

Dan's six saves on the night saw him pick up 60 per cent of the Fanscore votes with Chris Mepham a long-way back in second, and Ryan Woods in third. 

Amongst the supporters, Tony Rivers is the early pace-setter in 2018 after scoring 345 points last night, helped by a 200 point bonus for being within 30 seconds of the correct first goal time. He leads Joea97 by 52 points with jamieatsix a further 18 points back. 

That fine start to the New Year has also elevated Tony to 11th in the season-long league, just over 300 points behind the long-time leader Mark Allerton. Mark's advantage at the top has been trimmed again with Joea97's fine score this week moving him to within 130 points of the leader: Henry Ivey, IrishBees and bubbss6 round out the top five.
