Carlton Morris nominated for Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month

Hatters striker Carlton Morris has been nominated for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for September.

The summer signing from Barnsley had already opened his account for the club with two strikes in August before quickly racing to half-a-dozen for the campaign with four in as many matches during September.

Morris put the Hatters in front against Wigan with a header before grabbing a brace in the 2-2 draw with Coventry, firing home powerful drives with each foot. His fourth goal of the month was a volley to break the deadlock in the 2-0 home win over Blackburn.

The league sponsors wrote about the 26-year-old: 'Morris arrived at Kenilworth Road with little fanfare or bravado, but just as off the pitch, opposing defenders don’t notice he is there until he pops up to score. His ability to sniff out a chance saw him claim four goals in as many games.'

The Town top scorer is up against the three players detailed below, with the winner to be announced on Friday morning...

 

Wes Foderingham - Sheffield United goalkeeper

The final brick in a defensive wall which didn’t concede in three away games in September, Foderingham kept his goal intact with his organisational and shot-stopping ability, making crucial saves in the victories at Hull and Preston.

 

Teemu Pukki - Norwich City striker

Injury and inconsistency meant Pukki did not make his usual flying start to a Championship season. That was until the calendar switched to September when he came alive with three goals and two pivotal assists in three games.

 

Patrick Roberts - Sunderland winger

His brilliance hasn’t always been paired with consistency, but Roberts made quite an impact in September. He cut inside to sweep home twice in Sunderland’s win at Reading and then provided a pinpoint cross for a late equaliser at Watford.

 

The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Chief Executive Trevor Birch and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
