The Championship Team of the Year was named over the weekend, and there was one glaring omission.
Nottingham Forest winger Michail Antonio was not included despite a stunning 2014/15 season following his summer move from Sheffield Wednesday.
The team, as reported upon by The BBC, included three attacking midfielders behind Watford striker Troy Deeney and Ipswich's Daryl Murphy.
These were Matt Ritchie of Bournemouth, Bakary Sako of Wolves, and Brentford's Tottenham Hotspur loanee Alex Pritchard.
A look at the goals and assists of the quartet this season shows Forest ace Antonio has contributed six more than Sako, and eight higher in comparison to Alex Pritchard.
There was no dependence on set pieces either from Antonio, as he has scored four more goals than his closest rival from open play.
Alex Pritchard has had an excellent season for Brentford, but it is hard to argue that he is more deserving on an individual basis than Antonio.

There was no place in the team for the recently voted Championship Player of the Year Patrick Bamford, the Middlesbrough striker on loan from Chelsea.
Also featuring in the line-up were Sheffield Wednesday's Keiron Westwood in goal, Norwich's Russell Martin, Middlesbrough's George Friend, Derby's Richard Keogh, Bournemouth's Simon Francis, and Grant Leadbitter of Middlesbrough in midfield.
