Player of the Month: February nominees

8 March 2018

The February nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month Award are:

Oli McBurnie (Barnsley)

The young Scot has made a startling impact at Oakwell, scoring four goals in four starts - all but one of Barnsley’s tally in February. He wants the ball all the time, loves to take on defenders using his trickery and knows how to finish.

Sean Morrison (Cardiff City)

The commanding leader of a Cardiff defence which conceded just two goals all month. Strong in the tackle, it is his power in the air which made the difference in both areas, scoring three goals in five games – all headers.

Tim Ream (Fulham)

For all Fulham’s flowing football, Ream’s composure at the back was central to three clean sheets in the month. Magnificent against Aston Villa, his last-ditch tackle on Benik Afobe against leaders Wolves exemplified his determination.

Billy Sharp (Sheffield United)

Irregular playing time in January served to spur on a focused Sharp to rediscover his scoring touch in February. As well as an assist against QPR, he managed four goals in four games, including a wonderful scissors kick volley against Leeds.

The winner will be announced on Friday 9th March.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL Trader Mikey Mumford.
