Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has been named the Championship player of the month for October.

The in-form Serbian international scored eight goals in four games as Marco Silva’s side responded impressively to the disappointing defeat by Coventry to finish the month with four wins in a row. The 27 year old has notched up an incredible twenty goals in seventeen games so far this season.

Mitrovic told Fulham’s official website: “I have a lot of quality around me in this team, a lot of creative players who make a lot of chances for me, so I have to thank them for helping me to score as many goals as I did in October. Thank you also to the manager for his trust in me, and the fans for their support. It is a nice award to win, but the most pleasing thing was that we also won lots of games.”

Marco Silva also added his congratulations to his prolific goalscorer:

“Aleksandar has been in great goal scoring form and deserves this award for October. His goals are a consequence of the team’s work and he acknowledges the contribution of his teammates. As well as scoring goals, Aleksandar has been working hard in training to assist the team with his all-round play.”
