        We begin our '72 of the 72' playing out from the back with West Bromwich Albion shot-stopper Alex Palmer.

        The 27-year-old academy product and former England youth international has been one of the Baggies' top performers this season and has been an ever-present figure, playing every league minute.

        Palmer is currently second in the Championship's clean sheet rankings having kept 16 clean sheets from his 38 games this season – only Leeds United's Illan Meslier has more this season (18).

        This term, West Brom have conceded five penalties in the league (no other team has conceded more) but thanks to their goalkeeper they have only conceded three times from the spot with Palmer making two penalty saves.

        That makes the 27-year-old one of only two goalkeepers to have saved two penalties in the Championship this season with Watford's Ben Hamer the other.

        Last summer, the Baggies rejected an offer from Luton Town for the goalkeeper and it would be no surprise if the club had a decision to make from a Premier League club again this summer - if they don't go up themselves!

        As a football fan, I can't wait for the end of the 2023/24 Championship, League One and League Two campaigns! The promotion and relegation battles are making it so exciting to watch. Can't wait to see who will be the heroes and villains in the remaining games. @Playmaker, love your annual countdown of the EFL's best performers, even though it's always controversial. Just remember, it's all about the stats, not just the players' skills
