Kurtis Guthrie and Denny Johnstone have had a contrasting few months, in terms of goal-scoring.
While Johnstone had not scored in 28 appearances, before Tuesday night’s 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Crawley, Guthrie had plundered nine goals in his last 13 games to boost his season’s tally to 11.
But the boot was on the other foot against Crawley, with ex-Birmingham City striker Johnstone breaking the deadlock with his long-awaited second goal of the campaign, while Guthrie drew a blank.
Guthrie was delighted that his strike-force partner finally ended his barren spell, spanning six months.
The duo will both hope to be on target at Accrington Stanley this weekend.
