Sone Aluko has been named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for October.

Fulham manager Slaviša Jokanović said: “I am very happy for Sone getting this award as he has worked hard for the team over the past months, so it is a good reward for him.

“We have seen an improvement to our results of late, so it is also a reflection on the whole team, and I want that hard work to continue so that many of my players will be eligible for this award in future months.”

Aluko said: “Personally it’s a great feeling to be recognised with this award. It’s a nice feeling to be publically rewarded for your efforts.

“Ultimately I think it’s a team award. I wouldn’t get this award if the team weren’t winning and it’s a credit to my teammates and all the staff who have provided me with a platform to play well on.

“The results have gone our way recently and because of this I’ve been able to show my best form”

Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “It’s great to see Sone doing so well under Slaviša Jokanović at Fulham after he was so unlucky with injuries at Hull.

“He’s clearly a very talented lad and has been a joy to watch in October, taking the game to the opposition, cutting through opposing defences, laying on chance after chance for teammates and scoring goals to boot!”
