Voting open for October's KIA Player of the Month award

1 November 2016

Supporters now able to cast their vote for club's monthly gong

Voting is now open for Bolton Wanderers' KIA Player of the Month award for October.

Having opened the month with a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Oxford United, the Whites recovered in memorable fashion to win all of their next six matches - keeping five clean sheets in a row along the way.

Sammy Ameobi scored his first goal for the Club in their 1-0 victory over Blackpool in the Checkatrade Trophy group-stages, before late own goal saw Wanderers clinch another 1-0 win as they returned to league action against Swindon Town.

Bursting into life midway through the month, Zach Clough fired home a memorable brace for his first goals of the season in a 2-0 victory over Oldham Athletic.

The Whites then clinched back-to-back wins on the road as memorable efforts from Ameobi and David Wheater secured a 2-0 victory away at Millwall before two Clough penalties saw off local-rivals Bury by the same score in front of the Sky cameras at Gigg Lane.

Bolton finished the month with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Port Vale at Macron Stadium, firing three first half goals in the space of nine minutes through Clough, Josh Vela and Lawrie Wilson to seal the win.

Impressing defensively with a string of clean sheets, Mark Beevers continued to shine in the heart of defence alongside Wheater with Mark Howard virtually unbeatable behind them in goal.

On the flanks, Andrew Taylor and Wilson took advantages of injuries elsewhere to make the full-back positions their own, the former completing every minute of all seven outings alongside Wheater.

Youth team gradutes Clough and Vela both started all of the Trotters' matches during the month, while Ameobi and Gary Madine also featured in all seven games. 

Elsewhere, Jay Spearing picked up where he left off to impress in the heart of midfield alongside Derik Osede and Tom Thorpe after winning the KIA Player of the Month awards for both August and September.

Fans are able to register their vote by commenting on the club's official Facebook page's post HERE. Both the Club's Player of the Month and the winner of the prize draw will be notified in due course.
