Most Championship goals 2021/22: Top 10 standings for this season

Published: 11:40, 4 October 2021

Last season Ivan Toney set a new record in the Championship for most goals scored in a single season, becoming the second Brentford player in a row to win the division’s equivalent of the Golden Boot after Ollie Watkins in 2019/20.

With Watkins moving to Aston Villa last summer, further propelling his status as a natural goal-getter which earned him three England caps earlier this year, and Toney helping Brentford win the play-offs, there is scope for a new Golden Boot winner to emerge from the second tier.

The likes of Teemu Pukki (26 goals), Andre Ayew (17 goals) and Emiliano Buendia (15 goals) all finished in the top 10 last term but have since left the division, so the goalscoring landscape will have a different feel to it in 2021/22.

But the question is: who will come out on top? Keep track throughout the season below.
