Opta Nationwide Football League
Division Two Index
[6 matches up to 1st May 2000]

Top Man: Notts County fans will hope that Darren Ward stays at Meadow Lane for a long time. The agile Welshman has had another excellent season for County.
Riser: Wigan may be out of contention for automatic promotion and without first choice goalkeeper Roy Carroll, but Derek Stillie is a more than adequate reserve. He is up to 7th in the Index.

Top Man: Wrexham have won their last four games, and central defender Brian Carey has been as strong as ever in the rearguard. He will hope that next season brings some joy for the inconsistent Robins.
Riser: Mickey Bell has signed a new contract at Bristol City, and he celebrated by curling a beautiful free-kick into the top corner at Colchester to give the Robins a dramatic 4-3 win.

Top Man: Wycombe manager Lawrie Sanchez has decided to rest Keith Ryan for the rest of the season, but his form until the Colchester game means that he is the top midfielder in Division Two over the last six games.
Riser: And Ryan's midfield partner Michael Simpson moves into the Index in ninth place after a series of good games for the Chairboys. He is the most accurate passer at the club and can unlock any opposition defence.

Attacking midfielders
Top Man: Oldham youngster Danny Boshell has been excellent since coming into the Oldham team a few weeks ago. Andy Ritchie has blooded a number of players in the hope that next season can be more productive.
Riser: John Mullin returned to Burnley in the summer, and has not enjoyed the greatest of seasons. But as the Clarets surge towards Division One, he has started to play a key role and is up to sixth in the Index.

Top Man: 12 goals in 11 league games from Peter Thorne have helped Stoke to the edges of the play off race. If he can continue to fire at the same rate, the Potters could be on for a quick return to Wembley.
Riser: Karl Connolly is the darling of the Racecourse Ground faithful and he has had a fine end to the campaign. Unfortunately for the Robins, he is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a move to Division One side Tranmere Rovers.

* A team of specially-trained Opta analysts monitor and record every touch of the ball in the FA Carling Premiership, Nationwide Football League and Bank of Scotland Scottish Premier League using state-of-the-art digital voice-recognition software. Each touch is awarded plus or minus points based on a system originally devised in conjunction with former England coach Don Howe. The Opta database then averages out each player's scores over the last six games to produce the Index, widely considered to be the quintessential guide to player form. Players must have played at least 225 minutes over the last six games to qualify.
