There have already been 266 goals so far this season in League One, with a number of players already pulling away in the hunt for the golden boot.
Peterborough’s Ivan Toney has scored eight in eight while his fellow teammate Mohamed Eisa has bagged six goals alongside him.
With the pair scoring so freely in their opening games they have made an impressive 70% contribution to their team’s total goals so far this season.
We take a look at the league’s all time top goal scorers and their totals that the Peterborough duo will have to beat this season if they want to leave a lasting impression on the league:
The current Sheffield Wednesday centre-forward bagged an impressive 36 goals in the 11/12 season for Huddersfield Town which was their eight consecutive season in the third tier of English football. His goals helped secure 4th spot in the League and they went on to beat Sheffield United on penalties to secure promotion into the Championship.
The former Southampton striker got his dream move to Liverpool in 2014 after turning heads with his impressive form in front of goal. In the 09/10 season, he racked up a total of 31 goals in the league for Southampton while also providing an assist on 13 other occasions. Despite Lambert’s fine form in front of goal that season, the Saints only managed a 7th place finish after being docked 10 points at the start of the season due breaching insolvency regulations.
Sharp has had two impressive seasons in front of goal in League One. His first was with Scunthorpe United in the 06/07 season where his 30 goals helped them secure automatic promotion into the Championship. His second would be with his current club Sheffield United as they became champions in the 16/17 season, 14 points clear at the top. That season Sharp also scored 30 goals, a tally he has failed to reach since.
Cox helped his former side Swindon Town to a 15th place finish in the 08/09 season. The current Southend United striker fired home 29 goals that season, a tally that helped him secure a move to West Bromwich Albion in the summer of 2009 who he then helped secure promotion to the Premier League the following season.
