With twenty-six goals to their name, it is no surprise that Jamie Cureton and Chris Iwelumo are the U's top performers so far this season.

Following the hectic Christmas and New Year programme, the Actim Index - the Official Player Ratings of the Coca-Cola Championship - has revealed that Curo and Chris have been the U's top men.

The 31-year-old has had 37 shots on goal, made 270 passes, 31 dribbles and 26 crosses. He has also assisted defensively with 23 successful tackles, 14 clearances and three interceptions.

Iwelumo is another striker performing consistently well for the U's.

The 28-year-old is the third highest ranked striker in the Index, scoring 13 goals so far this season. He has had 17 shots on target, made 234 passes and 15 dribbles.
