Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark has won 16 games so far in 2016/17, just ahead of fellow Championship centre half Shane Duffy on 15

Josh Cullen has started ten draws with Bradford, one more than fellow midfielder Gary Dicker on nine draws

Celtic centre half Fiacre Kelleher is not having the best time on loan at Peterhead, losing 12 of his 24 starts so far this season, the same as former Celtic centre half Darren O’Dea has lost in 2016/17 with Dundee

Starts/Completed Games
The Richard Keogh award for starting and completing games goes to Richard Keogh for starting and completing 27 games

Wes Hoolahan and Adam Rooney have both been substituted by their managers 11 times, while winger Jake Mulraney has been introduced 13 times

Stayed On Bench
Goalkeeper Dean Brill has stayed on the bench 25 times this season, while, of the outfield players, defender Sean Long remained an unused substitute in 14 games

Rooney’s 11 goals makes him the only player to be in double figures, and has also scored more penalties than any other player – three. Aberdeen have gone on to lose only one of the games in which the striker has found the back of the net, winning the other nine. Millwall’s Aiden O’Brien gets an honourable mention for his ten goals for the League One side

Defender Greg Cunningham has picked up eight bookings already this season, one more than fellow defenders O’Dea and Daniel Devine
