Keogh, Coutts, Hendrick, Sammon, Bryson & Ward make the Championship's top 100 players list.

Derby County have six representatives in the Actim Index’s top 100 players in the npower Championship for the 2012-13 season.

The Actim Index is the official player rankings index for the npower Championship.

It is statistically proven to identify the best players regardless of position by taking into account positive contributions within a game, as well as team results.

The index is based upon Actim Stats - The Official Stats of The Football League - and is produced by PA Sport in conjunction with Football DataCo.

They are derived from all the actions that take place during a match, including goals, shots on target, corners, fouls, offsides, passes, tackles, blocks and clearances.

Derby’s six players that appear in the top 100 are: Richard Keogh (19), Paul Coutts (37), Jeff Hendrick (58), Conor Sammon (61), Craig Bryson (84) and Jamie Ward (87).

Keogh’s final day appearance in the 1-0 home win over Millwall at Pride Park saw the Republic of Ireland international break into the Championship’s top five defenders table.

New signing Lee Grant, who last week agreed a free transfer move from Burnley, also appears in the top 100 at number 59.
