Leeds United may well sit top of the Championship table - however points and goal difference isn't the only thing putting them there.

In their first six games, @EFLStats say the Whites have the highest average home support attendance, 1,000 more than second place Aston Villa and nearly 8,000 more than third place Nottingham Forest.

Middllesbrough and Leeds sit toe-to-toe in the league at the moment, however 10,000 home supporters separate Leeds from Boro, who sit ninth in the table.

Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United occupy bottom with The Millers averaging 7,775 home fans. Sheffield United hold a four place lead over city rivals Sheffield Wednesday in sixth with an average home attendance of 23,368 compared to Wednesday's 21,720.
