Peterborough United skipper has work to do to win a Golden Boot, big match odds, man in the middle, big away following, season ticket news
Clarke-Harris has dominated the goalscoring charts for most of the season, but he’s been overhauled by bang in-form Ipswich Town forward Conor Chaplin.
Chaplin has scored 10 goals in his last eight appearances for a team who have now scored 99 goals in 45 third tier matches.
He now has 26 League One goals, one more than Clarke-Harris with one match for each to. Ipswich are at Fleetwood as they attempt to win the League One title on Sunday when Posh will be hoping to secure a play-off place by winning at Barnsley.
Clarke-Harris would most likely have to score two more than Chaplin to win the Golden Boot as the Ipswich man also has one more goal assist than the Posh captain (5-4).
Clarke-Harris won the League One Golden Boot two seasons after scoring 31 goals for a Posh team that won automatic promotion.

Posh are hoping in excess of 2,000 fans will be supporting them at Barnsley, even though the match will be televised live on Sky Sports.
Posh had sold just over 1,600 tickets early on Thursday morning.

Posh sold around 3,500 season tickets for the 2023-24 season before the end of the Eralt Bird discount period expired on April 30.
That’s a similar number compared to the same time last year.
