Igor Vetokele named Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month

5 September 2014

Charlton Athletic striker Igor Vetokele has been named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for August.

There were five goals in as many games for the livewire Angola forward who offers Charlton a threat in behind defences.

His skill was exemplified by both a low 20-yarder and a mazy run for his two goals at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Charlton manager Bob Peeters, who accepted the award on Vetokele's behalf, said: "He has made an impact and shown what a player he can be. But the whole team deserves recognition because we have all worked well together to help Igor get the goals."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "Vetokele has taken the Championship by storm after arriving from FC Copenhagen. He is going to be difficult to stop."

Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery said: "We chalked up Igor as a 100/1 shot for top goalscorer in the Championship, but we now have him marked as a serious contender at 20/1.

"Charlton's unbeaten start, underpinned by Vetokele's goals, has shortened them from 18/1 to 12/1 for promotion."
