Last Updated: 02/10/18 5:28pm
West Brom's Dwight Gayle has topped the Championship Power Rankings this week.
The Newcastle loanee ousted Norwich striker Teemu Pukki (No 7) atop the chart after netting a match-winning 20-yard free-kick in a 3-2 win at Preston - sending the Baggies top of the Championship table.
Lukas Jutkiewicz soared 31 places into runner-up spot after scoring both of Birmingham's goals during a 2-2 draw with Ipswich at St Andrews, while team-mate Che Adams slipped two places to No 5.
Blackburn midfielder Bradley Dack (No 3) teed up Adam Armstrong's initial equaliser before finding the back of the net himself in a 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest.
Sheffield United's David McGoldrick (No 4) converted an equaliser from the penalty spot before hitting an 88th-minute winner at Millwall.
Meanwhile, Adam Reach (No 6) broke the deadlock for Sheffield Wednesday against Leeds with a goal-of-the-season contender, before Mateusz Klich (No 20) salvaged a point for the visitors with an equally spectacular effort.
Josh Brownhill (No 8) was among the top performers after smashing Bristol City ahead from range against Aston Villa, before Birkir Bjarnason headed the Villans level before the break.
