Bristol Rovers striker Jonson Clarke-Harris has been named the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month for September.
It was not just his five goals in five games, including a spectacular overhead kick against Accrington, which stood out, but the fact that every one of his efforts was either an equaliser or the goal which gave Rovers a lead.
Clarke-Harris said: “I’m delighted to win this award on the back of what was a good month for both the team and myself.
“Throughout September, the lads really clicked on the pitch and we are now striving to carry this good momentum forward.
“The goal against Accrington was probably my personal highlight. I couldn’t really remember how I ended up attempting the bicycle kick, but it just sort of happened and the next thing I knew the ball was in the back of the net!
“It’s been a positive month and now we look to build on that across the upcoming games.”
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “Clarke-Harris looks to have found a home in Bristol after a nomadic career and no player in England’s top four divisions have scored more than the 19 goals he’s notched since signing on Deadline Day in January.
“He was on fire again in September, his goals helping the club to a six-game unbeaten run, and it will be a crushing blow to hear news of a calf injury that could keep him out until mid-November.”
Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “Jonson Clarke-Harris’s goals are keeping Bristol Rovers competitive in 8th place in League One. He scored five goals in five games in September including a spectacular over-head kick against Accrington.
“He currently sits in joint third place in the scorer charts having scored seven goals so far and is 9/1 to finish the season as League One top scorer having been as big as 40/1 before the season started.”
