Wanderers have picked up more points in League One than any other side since the start of the calendar year.

Ian Evatt’s men finished fifth in the table last term and have had a promising start to the new campaign, taking 13 points from their opening six matches.

The Whites are only a point behind current leaders Stevenage - who have played an extra game at this stage - and recorded a 2-1 victory against promotion rivals Derby before the international break thanks to goals from Dion Charles and Josh Dacres-Cogley.

Wanderers have won 17 of their 29 league fixtures in 2023, losing just six games in that run and picking up 57 points in total.

This puts them just above Barnsley, who finished fourth last term and currently sit in ninth place under new boss Neil Collins, who succeeded Michael Duff in the hot seat following his move to Swansea.

Portsmouth also rank highly, having enjoyed a strong finish to last season under John Mousinho. Pompey have picked up where they left off in recent weeks to climb into the play-off places.

Of course, a number of clubs included in the list were playing in the Championship or League Two last term. 

Plymouth, Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday won promotion to the second tier last season, while Forest Green, Accrington, Morecambe and MK Dons suffered relegation.
