Championship Top Goalscorer Odds: Blackburn's Sammie Szmodics 4/5 favourite after Sunderland brace

Blackburn's Sammie Szmodics is the 4/5 favourite to finish as the Championship's Top Goalscorer this season after notching a brace in Rovers' 5-1 win at Sunderland.

Republic of Ireland international Szmodics' latest goals for Blackburn at the Stadium of Light has taken him to 23 for the season in the Championship, ahead of Southampton's Adam Armstrong on 20 and Plymouth's Morgan Whittaker on 19.

Top Goalscorer

28-year-old Szmodics' goalscoring exploits this season have been particularly impressive given the ex-Colchester and Peterborough man is not an out and out striker, most typically deployed in a second striker role at Ewood Park.

An indispensable player at the Lancashire club, Szmodics' total of 27 goal contributions in the Championship - 23 goals and four assists - means the Rovers talisman has been directly involved in 48% of Blackburn's league goals this term.

Currently four goals ahead of Southampton's Adam Armstrong at the top of the goalscoring standings, Szmodics will hope his form in front of goal can continue for the rest of the season in order to secure the Golden Boot, although Russell Martin's Saints do have two more games left to play than Rovers.

Plymouth's Morgan Whittaker will also hope to have a say in the race to finish as the top scorer in England's second tier, with the 23-year-old having hit 19 goals to date for the newly promoted Argyle.

Leeds United's in-form Crysencio Summerville is also an outside shout in the race to finish as the Championship's top marksman, with the Dutch winger having scored two goals in the Whites' last two games to take his league tally to 17.
