Not to forget that the former PAOK player, who was up for the same accolade in December, won it after putting on a strong display for the Riverside-based team, scoring a hat-trick against Wigan Athletic and a goal against Luton Town FC.
Tom Bradshaw (Millwall), Hjalmar Ekdal (Burnley), and Kyle McFadzean (Coventry City) are the other contenders for the Player of the Month honour, which the 27-year-old will battle out.
Don Goodman, an EFL specialist for Sky Sports, Trevor Birch, and Ivor Davies, an EFL trader for Sky Bet, makes up the panel of judges for the Sky Bet Player of the Month award.
The London-born striker, who has pledged to represent Nigeria in 2019, is anticipated to be included in Jose Peseiro’s Super Eagles roster this year owing to his exceptional performance so far for his team.
