As many will have noticed, Leon Smith has now scored in 6 consecutive games after his goal last night, becoming the first player to do so since Iain Dowie in 1988-89 and equalling the post-WWII club record.

The club record is held by Oscar Reinke, who scored in 8 straight games in 1925-26, whilst Jock Ellison (1938-39) and Arthur Humphreys (1914-15) both scored in 7 straight games.

Therefore, in order for Leon to equal Reinke's record, he needs to score against both Lewes and Barking, and then to take the record, score against Dorchester.

The full list of players to score in 6 or more consective games follows.

8 Oscar Reinke (1925-26)

7 Jock Ellison (1938-39)
7 Arthur Humphreys (1914-15)

6 Leon Smith (2014-15)
6 Iain Dowie (1988-89)
6 Laurie Churchill (1965-66)
6 Danny Lakey (1964-65)
6 Tommy Lawrence (1957-58)
6 Travers Day (1922-23)
6 Cecil Wise (1921-22)

The only other players to score in 5 straight games in the past 20 years are Jamie Busby, Harry Hunt, Ricci Crace, Paul Whitmarsh and Junior Lewis.
