With his winner against Barnsley on Wednesday night, Ben Brereton Díaz has become the 23rd player in the history of Blackburn Rovers to reach 20 league goals in a season. The hopefully complete list is below (any corrections much appreciated!) 

Howard Gayle scored 19 goals in regular league matches in 1988-89 plus two in play-off matches and therefore could also have a claim for a spot.
