Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has been named the Championship's player of the season for 2021-22.

The Serbia international has enjoyed a remarkable season for the already promoted Whites, with 41 goals so far.

Two more will see the 27-year-old break Guy Whittingham's post-war second-tier record of 42 in a season.

League One player of the season went to MK Dons midfielder Scott Twine and the League Two award was won by Forest Green full-back Kane Wilson.

Mitrovic won the Championship prize ahead of team-mate Harry Wilson and Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke.

Wales international Harry Wilson, 25, has scored 10 goals and assisted a further 16 for the champions-elect, while England cap Solanke, 24, has scored 27 goals for the second-placed Cherries.

Twine, 22, has been pivotal to Milton Keynes' challenge for promotion to the Championship, scoring 16 goals and assisting 13.

He was picked ahead of Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan, 32, and Rotherham striker Michael Smith, 30.

Former Scotland international Bannan did, however, win the award for goal of the season for his stunning long-range strike against MK Dons earlier this month.

Defender Kane Wilson, 22, has missed just one league game for Forest Green, who confirmed their first-ever promotion to the third tier on Saturday, so far this campaign.

Nottingham Forest forward Brennan Johnson, 20, was named Championship young player of the season and manager of the season was won by Luton Town boss Nathan Jones.
