Forte managed to grab himself five goals to draw himself within three of the League 1 top goalscorer Eoin Doyle.

Latics manager Lee Johnson said: "Jonathan fully deserves this award and not just for his goals.
"Since joining the club he has been professional in everything he does. He trains well, works hard, talks to young professionals and passes on his vast knowledge.
"The award from Sky Bet is recognition of great work in the month of October."

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “Forte is red-hot at the moment and this is already the most prolific season of his career.

"Opponents continue to double up on him, but he continues to find a way through."

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.
