Leeds duo amongst front runners in Opta  Index

Leeds United duo Jonathan Howson and Luciano Becchio are amongst the front runners in the Opta Actim Index.

Join The Vital Debate

The Actim index is based on the performances of all the players in the Championship and Howson (3rd) and Becchio (4th) are amongst the leading points scorers.

Points are calculated on the player and team`s performance. It assesses a player`s contribution to his team and how many points they have won when they have appeared.
It also takes into account the players own performance, with goals, assists, tackles, clearances and shots and time they are on the pitch.

Howson is in third place overall with 356 points whilst Becchio is in fourth with 354.

Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd leads the way with 422 points and Queens Park Rangers Adel Taarabt is in second with 377 points.

There are also four other Leeds players in the top 100 with Max Gradel 13th on 296, Neil Kilkenny 75th on 210, Robert Snodgrass 83rd with 207 and Paul Connolly 87th on 204.

In the positional rankings, Howson is second in midfield behind Taarabt and Becchio is 2nd behind Bothroyd in the strikers department.
