Our partners Comparisonator outlined his season’s statistics in detail.

Hamer has played 90% of the season as a defensive midfielder which proves he’s a master of the all round game.

The 24-year-old averages 1.9 successful attacking actions and 11.11 successful defensive actions every 90 minutes.

This shows that he’s clearly a strong defensive player but Hamer plays a huge part in Coventry’s attacking play as well with an average of 1.02 successful key passes per 90 minutes – the second highest in the Championship.

His passing statistics are up there with the best in the league with an average of 14.17 successful passes into the final third and 2.81 successful long passes per 90 minutes.

Gustavo Hamer is 5’7″ but uses his body well as he wins 6.64 duels every 90 minutes.

Coventry City look set to miss out on a play-off spot despite having a strong start to the season but if they manage to hold onto this man then their chances of achieving their goal next season will be much more likely.

The joint top scorer in the league, Will Keane has scored some vital goals for Wigan. The Latics are on the brink of gaining promotion to the Championship thanks to his contributions.

It’s the 29 year olds’ best ever season in terms of goal scoring after a series of loan spells whilst at Manchester United and stints at Hull City and Ipswich Town.

Playing in a role just behind the striker, Keane has also contributed seven assists in Wigan Athletics’ free-following attack.

Will Keane has averaged 2.06 successful attacking actions per 90 minutes as well as 7.24 successful passes into the final third proving his worth going forwards.

It’ll be interesting to see how Will Keane does in the Championship next season (should Wigan get promoted) but his confidence will be sky high after an impressive 2021/22 season.

His performances have also earned him two call up’s to the Republic of Ireland’s national team and now has three caps to his name.

A remarkable season for Swindon Town sees Louis Reed named as the League Two Fan’s Player Of The Season.

His passing has been different class and his pivotal in Swindon Town’s possession based style of play. The club simply wouldn’t be fighting for a playoff place without him.

His statistics this season prove that he’s one of the best players in the league and is ranked in third place in Comparisonator’s best statistical players of the season.

His passing stats are excellent. Reed averages 70.06 passes per game and 60.03 of those are successful, the best in League Two.

Louis Reed has also received the second most passes in League Two, showing that he’s more than keen to get on the ball and cause problems.

Along with these stats, he also averages 4.28 successful long passes per game which is the third highest in the league showing his range of pass is first-class.

If Swindon Town fail to win promotion this season, then it’s more than likely that clubs in the league above and the Championship will come knocking. The midfielder has bags of potential and is only 24 years of age.
