Vokes named Player of the Month

7 March 2014

Burnley striker Sam Vokes has been named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for February.

Vokes claimed the spotlight at Turf Moor with five goals in as many games, including braces against Queens Park Rangers and Nottingham Forest, as he continued his dynamic partnership with Danny Ings.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: "We are all delighted for Sam. He has continued to give a very high performance level in a team who, he appreciates, give him the backing and support needed for both him and the squad to flourish."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "Burnley have gone nine games unbeaten, largely thanks to contributions from Vokes who netted five goals in February.

"He's been a very unselfish sidekick to strike partner Danny Ings, and no doubt Sam's efforts will go a long way to securing a regular starting place in the Wales side."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: "It's been another great month for the Burnley front man to keep Sean Dyche's side in the hunt for a return to the Premier League.

"The Vokes-Ings partnership has been a revelation this season as they have continually terrorised Sky Bet Championship defences."
