There are always strikers who steal the show in The Championship, and this campaign has been no different.

Here we take a look at the top three Championship strikers of the 2012/13 season. 

Matej Vyrda

Vydra had a stunning start to life in English football and the young man played a crucial part in Watford's incredibly unlucky automatic promotion challenge. 

Vyrda is a player who has benefited so highly from his manager's neat, passing philosophy and has managed to forge a strong partnership with fellow striker Troy Deeney in what has been the best season the two of them have ever had. 

However, Vydra's performances have suffered dearly towards the last few months and has found goals hard to come by. Bagged 20 goals this year.

Jordan Rhodes

Rhodes was incredible last year in league one and was the key reason for Huddersfield getting promoted.

However, there was still some doubt over whether Blackburn had overpaid when they splashed out £8 million for the young Scot in the summer and that doubt has most certainly evaporated from the surface. 

Rhodes has been to Blackburn what Bale has been to Tottenham this year! He has played a key part in everything that Blackburn have done well this year and possesses the potential to become Scotland's best striker of the last decade at least. He has hit a wonderful 30 goals this year.

Glenn Murray

With the attacking flair of Zaha, Bolasie and Jonathan Williams - Glenn Murray would may not have been the first name on the list of impressive stars this year.

However, the journeyman has had without a doubt his best season this year, and he has managed 30 goals this year, helping his side achieve a play off position.
