Congratulations to Lucas Joao, who has claimed his second Player of the Month award in a row by topping our October poll.

After storming to victory in September, it was a much closer affair this time around, with Joao receiving 41% of the vote, followed by Liam Moore (31%), Omar Richards (18%) and Michael Morrison (10%).

It was another month in which the Portuguese striker enjoyed a rich vein of scoring form, netting four times in five games to take his tally for the season to nine. This included the winner against Wycombe Wanderers, a penalty (which he had won) against Rotherham United and strikes on the road at Blackburn Rovers and Coventry City.

Earlier this week, Olly looked at the stats behind Joao’s striker profile - highlighting his remarkable ability with the ball at his feet and how he is so much more than a typical target man despite his 6ft 3in frame.
