Sky Bet League Two: February Player of the Month winner

Lincoln City winger Bruno Andrade has been named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for February.

8 March 2019

Andrade has always had the ability to play wide or in the centre of midfield. Goals haven’t always been his forte, but they were in February. He scored six of Lincoln’s seven goals, showing off his technique, timing and tenacity...

Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley said: “Bruno worked really hard, doing extra training following the disappointment of his suspension and has done really well, he showed he has the individual brilliance to be the difference in some tight games.

“He’s had a brilliant run since he came back from being out of the team and you have to give him credit to him for that. From our point of view, one of the most rewarding parts of our job is to see someone working so hard and then reaping the rewards they deserve.”

Andrade said: "I'm very proud, especially after the month I’d just had obviously with the red card and that was the point I had to get my head down and come back fighting.

"I had something similar at Boreham Wood when I had (scored) five in five, but this one means a little more as it’s higher up and the stakes are higher as well. But I think that it’s probably the best month I’ve ever had.

"I feel like every game is important, everything we do is magnified now, we picked up a lot of draws in games that we should have seen out.

"On a personal level I think I need to keep going, there’s no point having one good game and putting your feet up and thinking 'I had a good game last week and I can relax now’ that’s not my mentality.

"My mentality is that I have to keep going week after week and just help the team out. We know what we need to do now to achieve what we want to."​

Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “Andrade is on fire for a Lincoln side that are tightening their grip on automatic promotion with each passing week.

“He’s had to wait his chance in the EFL after struggling to break through with QPR, and proved himself with non-league Boreham Wood, before coming back with hunger to succeed at this level, and he deserves all of the praise coming his way.”

Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “Andrade scored six of Lincoln’s seven goals in February which is an impressive return for a striker let alone a winger!

“Lincoln are looking good at the top of Sky Bet League Two and are priced accordingly at 5/6 for the title and 1/16 for promotion.
