SIX OF THE BEST: August’s top team, Robert Nicholl’s Ma-Sides Back Again, lead the way by six points, which was the precise contribution of Coleraine striker James McLaughlin

IT hasn’t been a bad start to the season for anyone at Coleraine but Robert Nicholl has every right to boast a spring in his step.

For his ‘Ma-Sides Back Again’ XI top our McLean’s Fantasy Football leaderboard, earned him both the early-term plaudits and a very welcome £100 reward as August’s Manager of the Month.

Though we’re suspicious he’s benefited more from luck than judgement where his goalkeeper is concerned (was Cliftonville’s Peter Burke really selected for any reason other than being cheap..?), it’s fair to say Mr Nicholl has form for spotting a bargain or two where Fantasy Football is concerned — he and his wife Sharon both finished in our top 10 last season!

MA-SIDES BACK AGAIN

Goalkeeper: Peter Burke (Cliftonville)

Defenders: Emmet Friars (Ballinamallard United), Mark Hughes (Warrenpoint Town), Marcus Kane (Glentoran) James Singleton (Glenavon)

Midfielders: Aaron Burns (Linfield), David Cushley (Ballymena United), Paul Heatley (Crusaders), Paul McElroy (Dungannon Swifts)

Strikers: James McLaughlin (Coleraine), Gary Twigg (Portadown).

So who is leading the field and who is holding you back?

Scores do not include the weekend’s matches.
