ACCRINGTON Stanley goal hero Gary Roberts wants to be the solo success at the top of League Two's scoring charts.
The 22-year-old is currently joint top with Wycombe's Jermaine Easter with seven league goals but one against Wanderers tomorrow (Sat) could put him ahead.
"It would be a great achievement to be at the top," said on-song Roberts.
"I flick on Sky and see my name there at the moment and it is quite nice but I would be made up to be top on my own.
"It might even help me get the Player of the Month for League Two which would be great."
The wideman has started up front in the last five matches and has yet to be on the losing side over 90 minutes.
And he says he is taking lessons from the man in the know about being a striker.
"I want to learn and I am learning a lot off Paul Mullin," he said.
"He tells me where to go and tells me off when I make stupid runs.
"He speaks to me throughout the game and helps me a lot.
"He has got so much experience and has great aerial ability and a high work rate.
"But I was slightly worried at one point as he moved up to five goals when I was on six and he was catching me. I had a go at him but I have pulled away again now!"
Roberts' name is being talked about again especially in Championship circles with a number of clubs tracking the new frontman.
"I am just concentrating on playing well and scoring goals for Accrington Stanley," he said.
"I don't care whether I play on the wing or up front as I am just glad to be playing.
"I prefer any position where I get the ball most so I don't really mind!
"But if I do play up front I am expected to score goals so I am just doing my job."
Roberts' last goal came in the 2-2 draw with Bury on Tuesday night where he finished well.
"To be honest, the pass made it. Ian Craney played a great through ball and I just had to finish it off.
"Jimmy Bell had been saying that their keeper Kasper Schmeichel is a good goalie and strong at kicking and saving shots so I was pleased to score against him.
"I am obviously happy with seven goals and now I just want to keep scoring!"
And a goal against high-flying Wycombe would set it off nicely - especially if Easter doesn't score as he is struggling with a groin injury.
"We seem to enjoy playing the top teams. Wycombe are up there and there isn't a lot between the top few at the moment.
"We haven't been doing so well away from home but I don't think clubs will like coming to the Fraser Eagle Stadium with the changing rooms etc.
"We have got to make sure we keep picking up points at home."
- STANLEY will play League One side Carlisle in the Johnstone Paints Trophy at home on Tuesday October 17.
