Collins also bagged the award for best goal of the year for his volley against Cheltenham Town on Saturday 27 January.

He's been vital for Derby this season after the Rams lost 20-goal David McGoldrick in the summer. Furthemore, Collins has been the only fit striker for a number of weeks now after injuries to Conor Washington, Martyn Waghorn and Tyreece John-Jules.

He has 13 goals in League One but 18 in all competitions and has really established himself as the nailed on first choice striker.

Collins has already surpassed his tally from last season already when he scored 11 goals in the league. He's on course for one of his best seasons.

However, his best came in the 2018/19 season when he scored 25 goals in 45 games for Luton Town.
