Player of the Month: Mohamed Eisa – Cheltenham Town

6 April 2018

Cheltenham Town striker Mohamed Eisa has been named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for March.

After a nomination last month, Eisa went one better after four goals in five games. These all came in the away victories at Swindon and Crawley, where he also won a penalty. Constantly on the move, he is calmness personified in front of goal.

Cheltenham Town manager Gary Johnson said: “It is a great and thoroughly deserved accolade for Mo and rich reward for his excellent form over the last few months. 
“Mo has enjoyed a wonderful first full season in the EFL. He is learning and getting better with every game and hopefully the fact that his ability has been recognised and rewarded in this way will now spur him on to finish the season really strongly.”
Eisa said: “I'm absolutely delighted to get the award. I was nominated last month too and came close then so it is nice to go one better and be named as the winner.

“It's been a good March for both me and the team, with some positive results, especially on the road.

“It's always great to win any award and I thank my teammates for the part they played in helping me achieve this.

“Now I just want to use it as a springboard to kick on and perform well until the end of the season."

Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “Mo Eisa was unlucky to miss out on last month’s award, and has shown brilliant consistency in his debut EFL season.
“Vital doubles in March gave Cheltenham six much needed points, but his contribution throughout the season has impressed and he’s behind only Billy Kee in the running for the League Two Golden Boot this season.”

Sky Bet EFL trader Mikey Mumford said: “Mo Eisa at Cheltenham is a great story having been plucked from non-league Greenwich Borough and his debut season in the EFL couldn’t have gone much better.”
