Vital Poll: Stansfield is Exeter's top striker?

31% of voters believe Adam Stansfield should be Exeter City`s first choice striker.

The hardworking striker is certainly a fans favourite, and I agree with the view that he is worthy of a starting place. If manager Paul Tisdale opts for two up front, the next contender is on-loan striker Stuart Fleetwood with 23% of the vote. Since his return to St. James Park on a season long loan from Charlton Athletic, Fleetwood has struggled to make the desired impact. Indeed this front pairing started at Walsall on Saturday and it doesn`t need me to tell you it didn`t prove too fruitful. Fleetwood remains arguably City`s best finisher. However, he needs to work a lot harder off the ball, and relying on defensive mistakes won`t work. There needs to be a more substantial all round contribution, especially in a team which could be involved in a battle for survival.

In third place is Ben Watson, who has been in excellent goal scoring form for the reserves since a long injury lay-off. Watson carries 16% of the vote, and the enterprising frontman deserves a shot in the first team. Marcus Stewart has 11% of the vote, and brings unrivalled experience to the team, but is that enough? There then remains four players each with 5% of the vote; Richard Logan, Barry Corr, Craig McAllister, and James Norwood.

For what it`s worth, I would like to see a big man, small man partnership. This would consist of Adam Stansfield or even Ben Watson alongside Richard Logan, who deserves a chance from the start. My view of Stuart Fleetwood has changed in recent weeks, and unless he is given better service from the midfield he offers little to the team.
