Landmark in free-scoring Kee's sights

Accrington Stanley striker Billy Kee is approaching his 50th goal for the Reds, currently sitting on 49 strikes.

The forward has already managed eight goals this season and was nominated for the September Player of the Month in SkyBet League Two.

Speaking to the club website the 26-year-old says his not done yet:

"I would like to get 100 Accrington goals by the time I finish my time here.

"I am the top league scorer at Accrington and am the top league scorer at Burton which is always nice."

The ex-Leicester City man grabbed five of his eight goals in September with Stanley winning each of the four games he found the back of the net in.

But having been nominated for the Player of the Month award, says it's not all about him

"It's nice to be noticed but I think it should be a Team of the Month award.

"You are up for awards usually when teams are doing well.

"For the goals against Port Vale, it was Sean McConville's cross which made it and I just had to tap it in from a yard so the awards should be for everyone as it’s all about the team."

Next up for Stanley is a home meeting with Port Vale on Saturday afternoon at the Wham Stadium.

Both clubs are battling it out at the top of the League Two table for automatic promotion.

"Luton were strong last year, they were a good side and this game, like the Mansfield game, will be a sign of how far we have come.

"It will be a big crowd and it's the games you love to play in.

"Hopefully I can get my 50th goal."
