Mitch Megginson is hoping the greatest scoring spree of his senior career can help Cove Rangers make Scottish football history this season.
The Cove captain has scored 20 goals in total – including seven in his last five matches – as Paul Hartley’s side have recovered from a December glitch to pull five points clear at the top of League 2.
While simply staying in the division was the first target, they’re now bidding to become the first club to win promotion in their maiden season.
Megginson, who has scooped the player of the month award for January, said: “At the start the first ambition was to cement our place in this league but as the season has progressed, we’ve done so well that we are now looking to at least secure a play-off spot.
“Of course, if we’re still in a good position with a few games to go then of course we’ll be trying to win the title.
“I think, long-term, the chairman has ambitions to see how far he can take Cove in the Scottish leagues.
“It would be fantastic for me if I could go on that journey.”
It was an awards double for the Balmoral Stadium side as Hartley was named top boss for the second time this season.
He said: “Mitch is in great form right now. He’s got 17 league goals already, which is fantastic and long may that continue.
“It’s not just his goals it’s his overall teamwork. He leads by example as our captain and talisman.”
