Sky Sports have released their list of the top ten Championship players of the season so far - and despite their free-scoring start to the campaign, Ipswich Town have been snubbed.

The list, topped by Diogo Jota of league leaders Wolves, has been calculated using ‘Sky Sports Power Rankings’ to work out which players have performed better than others so far.

But there is no place for Town players who are having statistically fantastic seasons.

Striker Martyn Waghorn, surely the Championship buy of the season at just £250k from Rangers, has already knocked in ten goals and set up five more - both better more than Norwich young gun James Maddison (five goals and three assists), who makes the list in eighth spot.

Cole Skuse too, doesn’t make the cut - despite being the leading interceptor of passes in all of Europe’s top leagues.

There is no space either for Joe Garner (six goals and two assists), or David McGoldrick (six goals and three assists).

The full list is:

1) Diogo Jota, Wolves

2) George Saville, Millwall

3) Sol Bamba, Cardiff

4) Junior Hoilett, Cardiff

5) Bobby Reid, Bristol City

6) Luke Freeman, QPR

7) Ollie Watkins, Brentford

8) James Maddison, Norwich

9) Leo Bonatini, Wolves

10) Albert Adomah, Aston Villa
