League Two 2016/17 Golden Boot Battle (12/4/17)

League Two 2016/17 Golden Boot Battle (12/4/17)

With all playing 41 League Two games in the 2016/17 season, this year could still see a few players break the 20 goal mark.

With goalscoring so far this season, the Golden Boot race is pretty much a five player race with John Marquis (Doncaster Rovers), John Akinde (Barnet), Matthew Godden (Stevenage), Omar Bogle (Grimsby Town) and Danny Hylton (Luton Town) best placed to take the recognition this season.

With five games remaining though a number of players could potentially make a late run on Marquis' 25 goals so far this year but sitting on 14 goals or below I think, short of some brace and hattrick runs of form, we can now discount them.

So limited to those with twelve or more strikes so far this campaign, here's how the table currently sits.
