Viktor Johansson (Rotherham United) – Helped Rotherham United record a clean sheet on their best day in ages. Big player for the Millers in every way and with a new deal safely signed.Defence

Dael Fry (Middlesbrough) – Marked his 200th Boro appearance with an imperious showing as the hosts claimed an important win against play-off rivals Millwall.

Michal Helik (Huddersfield Town) – Found the net for Town and was a rock at the back, Just unfortunate that Town's blue and white wall was breached at the death at Hull.

Oscar Estupinan (Hull City) – Broke Huddersfield hearts with a clinical stoppage-time leveller having earlier hit the post. Four in four in the league and up to 12 for the season.

Wilfried Gnonto (Leeds United) – Full of pace, threat and directness and impressed many at Villa - including Gary Neville. Set up United's goal superbly. Already a big player for Leeds.
