How Marek Rodak has been one of the best goalkeepers in the Championship so far

Rotherham goalkeeper Marek Rodak has been the most worked goalkeeper in the Championship so far this season.

The Slovakian, on a season-long loan from Fulham, has made 24 saves, more than any other stopper in the opening six games of the division.

He is one ahead of Sheffield Wednesday’s Cameron Dawson and two in front of Hull keeper David Marshall.

Rodak has saved 68 per cent of the shots on target, conceding 11 times, and is one of six goalkeepers to have kept two clean sheets.

He is facing on average 14.8 shots a game, with only Bolton (16.3) and West Brom (15.2) allowing the opposition to take aim more often.

Rodak’s average rating, always a good judging tool, is 6.90. These ratings are formed by Opta using a “comprehensive statistical algorithm using over 200 raw statistics”. We’ll leave the maths to them, but it’s out of 10.

Only Bailey Peacock-Farrell (Leeds), Darren Randolph (Middlesbrough) and Joe Lumley (QPR) are rating higher.
