Sky Bet Championship: Post-match stat pack

18 February 2023

Take a look at some of the key figures from this weekend's Sky Bet Championship action!

●      Burnley have now won each of their last five away league games, it’s the first time they’ve won five league games on the road in the second tier or higher since January 1973.

●      After conceding six goals in two home league games in December, Blackburn have recorded a clean sheet in three successive league fixtures at Ewood Park for the first time since December 2021. Indeed, only Coventry (9) have recorded more on home soil in the Championship this campaign.

●      13 of Chuba Akpom’s 19 Championship goals for Middlesbrough this season have come at the Riverside Stadium - the last Boro player to score more home league goals in a single season was Fabrizio Ravanelli in the Premier League in 1996-97 (14). 

●      Neil Warnock has won his first league game in charge of Huddersfield – he’s now won his first league fixture at each of his last three clubs, doing so with Cardiff in October 2016 and Middlesbrough in June 2020. He hasn’t lost his first English league game for a side since doing so with Oldham in February 1997.

●      Millwall’s Tom Bradshaw is the only player in the Championship so far this season to score a hat-trick in two different games - also doing so against Watford in October - while he’s the first player for them to net at least two home league hat-tricks in a second-tier season since Teddy Sheringham in 1990-91 (3).
