Clucas and Mawson goal record unequalled

9 Mar 2017
Leicester City v Hull City

Players who come face to face on Saturday have scored in each of the top five divisions in England

Two opposing players with peerless records go head-to-head in Saturday's Premier League encounter between Hull City and Swansea City

When Sam Clucas scored his first career PL goal in last weekend's 3-1 defeat at Leicester City, the 26-year-old matched something only previously achieved by Swansea's Alfie Mawson

The pair, who both opened their Premier League scoring accounts this season having risen through the lower leagues, are the only players to have netted in each of the top five divisions in England since National League scorer data records began in 2009/10.

Clucas, formerly of Hereford United, Mansfield Town and Chesterfield before being promoted with Hull in 2015/16, scored in each division in consecutive seasons. 

Mawson scored in the National League in 2013/14, League Two in 2014/15 and League One in 2015/16, before netting in both the Premier League and the Championship this campaign having played four matches with Barnsley prior to signing for Swansea in August.
