31 May 2013

-25 - Bristol City finished with the lowest goal difference in the division, scoring 59 and conceding 84.

13 - Thirteen players featured in all 46 league matches for their respective teams but only three were outfield players; Blackburn Rovers' Scott Dann, Derby County's Richard Keogh and Ipswich Town's Aaron Cresswell. The 10 goalkeepers that were ever-present this term were Birmingham City's Jack Butland, Burnley's Lee Grant, Cardiff City's David Marshall, Crystal Palace's Julian Speroni, Huddersfield Town's Alex Smithies, Leeds United's Paddy Kenny, Kasper Schmeichel of Leicester City, Middlesbrough's Jason Steele, Peterborough United's Robert Olejnik and Sheffield Wednesday's Chris Kirkland.

14 - Blackpool's Tom Ince takes the award for the most assists, putting the ball on a plate for his team-mates on 14 occasions.

14 - Just 14 points separated the Play-Off places and the relegation zone - Leicester City occupied sixth in the table with 68 points, while Peterborough United's tally of 54 points saw them finish in the bottom three. Last term, that tally would have seen Posh finish 14 points clear of the danger zone.

18 - Brighton and Hove Albion were the Championship's draw specialists with 18, closely followed by Blackpool with 17.

18 - Cardiff City registered the most clean sheets this season, beating Brighton to the accolade by one.
