Vokes Awarded Player Of The Month

7 March 2014

The Clarets striker beat off competition from Derby full-back Craig Forsyth, Leeds striker Ross McCormack and Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson to land the award.

And February ended as it started for the Welsh striker as he claimed another brace; this time putting Nottingham Forest to the sword at Turf Moor.

He was on the scoresheet again as Burnley secured their first win over Bolton at the Reebok Stadium in 30 years, getting on the end of Scott Arfield’s low delivery to score the only goal of the game.

Vokes began his most prolific month in a Clarets shirt with two goals at QPR, as Burnley battled to a 3-3 draw.

The Welsh striker found the back of the net on five occasions during the month, taking his tally for the season to 18 in all competitions.

Sam Vokes has been named SkyBet Championship player of the month for February after a string of impressive performances helped his side tighten their grip on second place.

Manager Sean Dyche received a nomination for the SkyBet manager of the month and the gaffer had some kind words for his striker who claimed the award.

"We are all delighted for Sam, who has continued to give a very high performance level in a team who, he appreciates, give him the backing and support needed for both him and the squad to flourish."
