The midfielder started three of Wanderers’ four games throughout the course of the month, netting back-to-back goals in the games against Derby County and Nottingham Forest.

The former Manchester United and Burnley man followed this up by netting his third of the season at Hull City at the weekend.

Eagles was a landslide winner, scooping over 70 percent of the fans’ votes in an online poll ahead of Chung-Yong Lee and Kevin Davies.

1. Chris Eagles – 73 percent
2. Chung-Yong Lee – 13 percent
3. Kevin Davies – 10 percent

Speaking about his award, Eagles said: “I’d like to thank everyone who voted and hopefully they have seen that it means a lot to me to be here and play for Bolton Wanderers. I’d like to win a few more of these awards by the end of the season.

“It’s been difficult for the fans because they have been frustrated with the start that we have made. But in this league, one win can change things and that can soon roll into two or three good results. Before you know it, you move straight up the league.

“We know we have to win matches and although some of the lads have been away on international duty, we have been in training this week working hard.

“I’m confident that we can come out after the international break, get a good result against Watford and move forward.”
