Duff and Rodriguez share the Watford spoils

Last updated : 08 March 2012 By Tony Scholes

Such was the performance, the player ratings were low whilst the man of the match vote drew a very small number of voters.

Michael Duff came out on top in the vote despite playing only the first half before being withdrawn with an injury. He polled 34.7% of the vote with Jay Rodriguez, scorer of our first goal, taking second place.

Jay's share was 27.0% and Dean Marney had 12.1% which was enough to give him third place on his return to the side following the birth of his baby a week earlier.

The same three players took the top three places in the player ratings although this time it was Rodriguez who came out on top with a rating of 7.08 out of 10. Duff and Marney were the only other players to score above the average performance rating of six with Duff's 6.54 taking second place and Marney coming third with a rating of 6.15 out of 10.

That means five points each for Duff and Rodriguez towards the Clarets Mad Player of the Year with two points for Marney.

Those points have changed the table too with Jay moving into first place, four points clear of Kieran Trippier. Marney remains in fourth place and Duff has now moved above Charlie Austin and David Edgar into sixth place.

The next vote will get underway on Saturday evening after the Crystal Palace home game and the results from the Watford game with the current player of the year table are below.
