Jacob Butterfield is the most creative player for Huddersfield Town in the Championship, statistics suggest.

Butterfield has set up an average of 2.7 goal-scoring chances per game - one of the highest ratios in the league.

The Trinity Mirror Data Unit have taken the number of chances created per player, as compiled by Opta, for those to have played in 10 or more games so far this season.

In his 18 games in the league this season, Butterfield has set up a team-mate on 48 occasions this season - or 3.7 times per game.

Sadly for Town fans though, just two per cent (one) of those chances created by the midfield schemer were turned into goals.

Butterfield's closest competitor in terms of creativity is loan striker Grant Holt.

The forward has set up 19 chances in 11 appearances since arriving from Wigan Athletic - which works out as an average of 1.7 per game.

That's followed by fellow loanee Jack Robinson (1.3 per game), Sean Scannell (one) and Harry Bunn (one).

Birmingham City's David Cotterill has been the league's most creative player overall with 3.8 chances per game with Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond just behind.

The former Birmingham midfielder has created 61 chances for teammates in 18 appearances - 3.4 per game.

The player with the third most chances per game is Rotherham's Ben Pringle (3.2), followed by Tom Cairney of Blackburn (2.9) and then jointly Butterfield and Wes Hoolahan of Norwich (2.7).

However, if we were to look at assists per game, then we get a slightly different story.

With nine assists in 19 appearances, Bournemouth's Matt Ritchie comes out top with an average of 0.5 per match.

He's followed by Alan Judge of Brentford with eight in 19 games (0.4 per game).

The rest of the top five is then made up jointly by Ross McCormack, Michail Antonio, Teddy Bishop and Hugo Rodallega (all 0.4).

Holt has the joint-third best ratio here after claiming three assists in his 11 Town outings, working out at 0.3 assists per match.
