With 14 goals to his name so far this season, it's not been a bad one for Mansfield Town striker Danny Rose.

But new research from bookmaker sportingbet reveals that he is also the sixth most important striker in the league this season, as his goals have contributed to more points than most other goalscorers in the League Two.

Of his 14 goals, seven have been winning goals and one has established a two-goal lead. An incredible 50 per cent of Rose's goals have been winning goals, which puts him joint third in the league for winning goal ratio.

Not only that, but without Rose's goals, Mansfield would be 14 points worse off, that's the third highest in the league, showing that the Stags are incredibly reliant on him.

But it's just not Rose's contribution, as Kane Hemmings has also scored very important goals this season. Without Hemmings, Mansfield would be 13 points worse off.

The research reveals that Accrington's Billy Kee is the most valuable strker in the division, with ten of his 21 goals having been match-winners. He's followed by Coventry's Marc McNulty and Swindon's Luke Norris.

Without Kee's contribution, leaders Accrington would be 20 points worse off.
