Not only is Jephcott Plymouth’s top scorer by a country mile this season, he also leads the way for them in shots per game (2) and average match rating (6.92), according to WhoScored.


The Pilgrims will face a real battle to keep hold of him this summer. He has adapted to the step up to League One from the fourth tier with ease and will be itching to have a crack at the Championship next term.

Jephcott would be ideal for Stoke, Sheffield Wednesday and Derby as he is young and has already proven himself in the lower leagues. He is one for the future and it will be interesting to see where he eventually ends up.

For now, the attacker will be focusing on Plymouth and will be eager to get as many goals as he can for them.
