It's been a tough season for Huddersfield Town in the Championship, but the sparkling form of their centre-back Michal Helik has not gone unnoticed. 

Currently 22nd in the second tier, the Terriers are scrapping for survival and they will hope their big Polish centre-half continues to excel at both ends of the pitch for the remainder of the campaign. 

Huddersfield's top scorer with nine goals to his name, Helik poses a huge threat from set-pieces and no player in the division can beat the defender's five goals from corners, throw-ins and free-kicks so far in 2023/24. 

With more minutes under his belt than any other Huddersfield player, Helik (3901 minutes) has been a rock this season and his defensive stats are also impressive despite the Terriers shipping 65 goals. 

Helik ranks fourth in the Championship for interceptions made (65), third for clearances (185), fifth for shots blocked (39) and 11th for aerial duels won (126) this term. 

If the Terriers fail to beat the drop, a second Championship relegation would be particularly harsh on Helik - who went down with Barnsley at the end of the 21/22 season - given the standard of his performances.

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
