Neal Maupay (Brentford) and Billy Sharp (Sheffield United) lead the way as Championship top scorers but, what about our own Lukas Jutkiewicz and how can one rate this man?
Leading Championship top scorers
Journeyman Jutkiewicz has the habit of banging them in at just about every club he’s played. Having said that, and I don’t want to get myself bogged down with too many statistics. However, his three year Everton stay (2007/10) has to be described as one heck of a flop.
Unable to gain a regular first-team place the Southampton born striker struggled both physically and mentally. In the end, he lost all confidence in his ability and ended up being shipped out on loan to Plymouth Argyle, Huddersfield and then Motherwell.
Joining Birmingham City on 31 August 2016 on an initial loan he subsequently signed a long-term contract which runs until the summer of 2020.
Our 6 foot 1-inch goal machine has, at last finally found his form. Perhaps our number 10 has finally located his mojo and is happy with life living in the Midlands.
"I think it's important in a group that we can trust each other that the constructive criticism comes from a good place and we're just trying to improve . . . "

Lukas Jutkiewicz for the season has only got 36,622. He’s got most of that over four games. Stupid ranking system. Makes no sense. pic.twitter.com/oilyvkk4TV

Jutkiewicz top, ahead of Norwich City’s Timm Klose and Queens Park Rangers duo Geoff Cameron and Joe Lumley.
If you click on the Sky Sports link, they will explain far better than I on how they come up with these sort of stats.
I have hopefully helped in throwing statistics your way in an attempt to help assist in how you will vote.
How Can One Rate This Man?
The poll asks: “Taking his attitude and performances into consideration how do you rate this man – out of ten.”
Votes will not be accepted when the poll closes.

***I am unable to watch Lukas on a regular basis, and so I would be intrigued to know how you rate him***
