Ben Brereton Díaz is the 23rd player in the history of Blackburn Rovers to score at least 20 league goals in a season, despite having only netted twice in 2022. 

After a blistering first half of 2021-22 it looked likely that he might claim a top 10 position in the below list, but he still joins a lot of famous names - his 22 goals match Simon Garner's best tally.
