EFL essential stats: James Maddison and Ryan Sessegnon

Each week, we will be taking a look back at some essential stats from the weekend’s action in the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two…

Marvellous Maddison

James Maddison scored as Norwich won 1-0 at Brentford on Saturday and has now been involved in 13 of Norwich’s 29 Championship goals this season (45%). He leads Norwich in goals (eight) and assists (five).

Maddison’s goals have won more points for his club (13) than any other player in the Championship this season. Albert Adomah’s 11 goals have won 12 points for Aston Villa and Billy Sharp’s eight have won 12 points for Sheffield United.

17-year-old Ryan Sessegnon scored twice in Fulham’s win v Barnsley and is their top scorer this season with 11 goals (all Championship). Sessegnon scored six goals in four Championship appearances in January and is the highest scoring player across all four English divisions this month.

Sessegnon has the best shot conversion rate in the Championship this season of players to score at least four goals.

Fulham are flying

Fulham moved into the play-offs for the first time this season after winning 3-1 at Barnsley in the Championship on Saturday. They won all four Championship games they played in January, scoring a total of 14 goals.

Barnsley had opened the scoring and the win means Fulham have now won more points from losing positions this season than any other Championship club (13) – ahead of Middlesbrough (12), Ipswich (11) and QPR (10).

If Fulham win a fifth successive Championship game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday it will be their longest winning run since a club record 12 league games between May-Oct 2000. They went on to be promoted to the Premier League in May 2001.
