September PotM Nomination - Jota (Wolves)
The September nominations for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month Award are:
Aden Flint (Bristol City) - central defender
Transfer bids and speculation delayed his first start of the season, but he made up for lost time at both ends in September. Commanding at the heart of the City defence, his three goals earned points against Reading, Wolves and Bolton.
Sam Johnstone (Aston Villa) - goalkeeper
The last line of a defence which kept five clean sheets in six games. A commanding presence, his forte is stopping shots. Outstanding all month, he produced a series of stunning saves to preserve a goalless draw against Brentford.
Diogo Jota (Wolverhampton Wanderers) - midfielder
Full of pace and directness, the on-loan Atletico Madrid midfielder drove forward at every opportunity. His five goals in six games included a beauty on the run against Millwall and two poacher`s finishes at Nottingham Forest.
James Maddison (Norwich City) - midfielder
Elegant in possession, the 20-year-old conjured up two of the Championship`s most memorable September goals in his four starts. First, a pinpoint curler for the winner at Middlesbrough, then an exquisite free-kick at Reading.
Winners will be announced on Friday 6th October 2017.
