Barry Bannan’s assist for Steven Fletcher at Bolton on Tuesday was his seventh of the Championship season.
He has also scored three goals of his own*.
It means this is now Bannan’s most productive ever league campaign, statistically at least.
Never before has he hit double figures for combined goals and assists in the English second tier – he managed nine under Carlos Carvalhal two seasons ago – and he still has nine games left in which to increase his tally.
But it is perhaps no surprise to see Bannan’s best form arrive as he approaches his thirties – the point at which a midfield player is typically said to enter their peak years.
And lucky for those of a Sheffield Wednesday persuasion, the Scotland international – called for the first time in 18 months on Tuesday – signed up for at least another two last August.
