Bristol City's Andreas Weimann crept into the runner-up spot after scoring his fifth goal of the season in a 1-0 win at Swansea on Saturday.
Wigan's Nick Powell dropped two places after a 1-0 defeat at QPR, while Sheffield Wednesday's Barry Bannan (No 5, up 17 places) assisted Lucas Joao's opener in a 2-1 win over Ipswich to land a top-10 spot.
Middlesbrough right-back Ryan Shotton (No 9, up up 19 places) received a stats-based boost after a 1-0 win against West Brom, while Bolton's Josh Magennis slipping four places to narrowly retain his place among the top performers.
