Midfielder wins award after Sky Bet and PFA Fans' League One Player of the Month success

Filipe Morais has been voted Bolton Wanderers' KIA Player of the Month for March 2017 by the club's supporters.

Having joined the Whites on a free transfer in February, the wideman scored his first two Bolton goals during the month and recorded an astonishing ten assists as the Trotters went unbeaten throughout March.

The 31-year-old opened his account for Wanderers with a late winner against Northampton Town before netting again against Oxford United, while his standout moments came when he claimed three assists in the Whites' 4-2 away victory over promotion-rivals Fleetwood Town before setting up all four goals in their 4-0 victory at Gillingham.

Starting all six of Bolton' games during the month, Morais' performances also saw him recognised around the division as he was named both PFA Fans' and Sky Bet's League One Player of the Month.

Supporters voted for the award on Facebook with the former Portugal youth international clinching an emphatic victory ahead of defensive duo Mark Beevers and David Wheater in second and third respectively.

Meanwhile, fan Rebecca Midgley has won hospitality in the Platinum Suite for a game of her choice by voting, where she'll present Morais with his accolade at an upcoming Wanderers home match.
