Championship 2017/18 Golden Boot Battle (7/11/17)

Championship 2017/18 Golden Boot Battle (7/11/17)

The season might only be three months old in terms of the calendar, but with high expectations for some players when it comes to this year's Golden Boot battle - here's who stands out so far.

With most playing 16 games so far in the 2017/18 campaign I'll limit the list to those who are in the BBC's top table with five or more strikes.
