23 January 2023

High-flying Stevenage secured a huge 3-0 win over table toppers Leyton Orient in Sky Bet League Two this weekend, making Boro the top headed goalscorers across the EFL.

Jamie Reid nodded in the opener as Stevenage cruised to victory to close the gap on the O's - who, by comparison, have scored the fewest headed goals in League Two - with Steve Evans' team now leading the way.

Here, we take a look at the leading headed goalscorers by division and team across the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two.
