League One 2017/18 Golden Boot Battle (7/11/17)

League One 2017/18 Golden Boot Battle (7/11/17)

The season might only be three months old in terms of the calendar, but with high expectations for some players when it comes to this year's Golden Boot battle - here's who stands out so far.

Last season the Golden Boot battle in League One was pretty much a three horse race, with Sheffield United's Billy Sharp topping the pile with 28, Bury's James Vaughan following on 24 and Scunthorpe United's Josh Morris on 19 and they'll be a number of strikers who will be looking to replicate their efforts.



There are more than enough games left for the table below to change so we'll just have to see what happens.

With most teams playing 16 games so far in the 2017/18 campaign I'll limit the table to those who have scored four or more times.
