Andre Gray named Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month

5 December 2014

Brentford striker Andre Gray has been named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for November.

Gray's predatory instincts are now on full show in the Sky Bet Championship with five goals in as many games, notably his curving run and clinical finish in the 4-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Brentford manager Mark Warburton said: “I am delighted for Andre. He will be the first to say that any award we receive speaks volumes about the team as a whole.

“Andre has made significant progress in a short period of time. He has demonstrated an eye for goal and a desire to improve.

“He is still a young player with significant development still to come. We look forward to watching his progress.”

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “Gray’s goals have been pivotal in Brentford’s recent run, with the centre-forward running defenders ragged throughout the month.

“Mark Warburton believes he has the talent to make the step up to the Premier League. Who are we to disagree?”

Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery said: “The pick of the bunch during an excellent month for Brentford.

"The former Luton striker was something of a gamble when the Bees signed him, but seven goals in 18 games this season has repaid that trust."

The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Head of Communications John Nagle; League Managers Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
