ADEBOYEJO NOMINATED FOR PLAYER OF MONTH AWARD

9 November 2022

BREWERS striker Victor Adeboyejo has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month Award for October.

Adeboyejo scored five times in the month and is one of four players being considered for the award.

The full nominations are:

Victor Adeboyejo (Burton Albion) – striker

Seven of Burton’s eight points in October arrived courtesy of Adeboyejo’s five goals in seven games. His hat-trick against Forest Green was a delightful combination - a close range header, a muscled second and a brilliant 20-yard curler.

Barry Bannan (Sheffield Wednesday) - midfielder

An all-pervading influence on Wednesday’s attacking play. Adding to his two October assists were two moments of genius – a blistering 20-yard strike into the top corner against Cheltenham and the deftest of close-in lobs against Burton.

Aaron Collins (Bristol Rovers) - striker

The dynamic striker is having a stellar season. Three goals and three assists were his official tally, but his driven finishes and superb crosses were supplemented by countless runs off the ball and a goal-creating dummy at Sheffield Wednesday.

Michael Cooper (Plymouth Argyle) - goalkeeper

While Plymouth scored 18 goals in the month, they relied on Cooper’s unflappability, bravery and shot-stopping ability at the other end. Several brilliant saves underpinned Argyle’s wins over Wycombe and Sheffield Wednesday.

The winner will be announced on Friday.

The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Chief Executive Trevor Birch and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
