Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month

7 December 2018

Aston Villa striker Tammy Abraham has been named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for November.

 It was six goals in four games for a striker who has been revitalised and infused with confidence by Dean Smith.

Back to his predatory best, attacking space and finishing with aplomb, the highlight was his four-goal haul against Nottingham Forest.

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith said: "Tammy has been a key part of our recent good form. His previous spell in the Championship showed everyone what he's capable of and he's displaying his goalscoring abilities once again. Long may it continue."

Abraham said: "I'm delighted to be named Player of the Month. It's been a great few weeks for us as a team as well as me personally. Hopefully we can continue that over a busy Christmas period and beyond."

Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “It’s no wonder that rumours have been circulating regarding discussions with Abraham’s parent club Chelsea to ensure he stays at Villa Park for the rest of the season, as his goals have been crucial to Villa’s upturn in form throughout November.

“His four-goal haul grabbed the headlines against Nottingham Forest, proving that he can put the ball in the net when it matters and after the first difficult period in his short career, he’ll be thrilled to be back amongst the goals.”

Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “The striker scored six goals in four games and has been revitalised under his new manager Dean Smith.

“Four of these goals came against Forest in a 5-5 draw that saw Abraham’s odds to be the leading marksman in the Championship cut from 25/1 into 4/1.”
