Ben Mee is the LoveBet Player of the Month for September.
The Clarets’ captain topped a supporters’ poll to take the award which he received from competition winner Andrew Fisher - who was among the fans to vote for Mee - before last Saturday’s Premier League fixture against Chelsea at Turf Moor.
Mee helped Sean Dyche’s side go unbeaten during September, with draws at Brighton and Aston Villa and a 2-0 home win over Norwich City.
“Those results were part of a really solid start to the season and the good run we had between the last international breaks,” said Mee.

“It’s a platform we’re looking to build on and add some more points before the next break.
“From a personal point of view, I’m delighted to have received the award and thanks to all the fans who voted.”
Mee, 30, has been a model of consistency again so far this season, extending the ever-present Premier League record he chalked up during the 2019/19 campaign.
And the long-serving defender is set to reach a major landmark on Saturday with his 300th appearance for the Clarets if he features at Sheffield United.
“It will be a nice milestone and after that I’ll be looking at the next one. I want to get to that first,” Mee added.
