Colchester's King Kev

Colchester United midfielder Kevin McLeod ended his season on a high after earning the highest score of the week in the Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Coca-Cola Championship.

McLeod scored 53 points after netting twice in the 3-3 draw against Scunthorpe last Sunday, his highest individual match score of the campaign.

It saw the 27-year-old climb to 292nd place in the Index with a final score of 205 points - a rise of 48 places.

Johnnie Jackson ends the season as Colchester`s top-ranked player in 53rd overall, Kevin Lisbie joining him in the top 100 in 65th position.

Analysis of all Championship games is taking place throughout the season and so far the top five Colchester players are:

Player, Ranking, Position Ranking, Index Score

Johnnie Jackson, 53rd, 15th Ranked Midfielder, 461
Kevin Lisbie, 65th, 17th Ranked Striker, 442
Dean Gerken, 181st, 21st Ranked Goalkeeper, 296
Mark Yeates, 182nd, 58th Ranked Midfielder, 296
Clive Platt, 184th, 42nd Ranked Striker, 294

The Actim Index is calculated using a unique mathematical formula that rates each player`s contribution be it goals, shots, passes, dribbles, tackles, crosses, saves, clearances, blocks, interceptions, assists, clean sheets, time on the pitch or number of points gained by the team with marks deducted for red and yellow cards.
