Paddy Madden: Rated as Championship material

If Johnson's Glovers are to reach the second tier for the first time in the club's history then the former Bristol City boss will need the partnership of James Hayter and Paddy Madden to keep firing.

Madden, who signed a permanent deal in the January transfer window after being loaned from Carlisle, has netted 22 times and the experienced Bournemouth forward Hayter has been the perfect foil and chipped in with 15 goals himself.

"That has been a massive partnership," Johnson said. "The pair of them have been fantastic.

"They have scored 30-something goals between them, James Hayter has had one of his best goalscoring seasons and he is a clever footballer.

"That cleverness has has helped Paddy, I'm sure. He is getting in the right areas and they are assisting each other.

"They have been a great partnership and I have had a few great partnerships over the years but those two are definitely Championship standard as a pair."

Yeovil have secured a play-off place ahead of the trip to Gigg Lane but a point would secure them a third or fourth-place finish, the highest in the club's history.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
