David Wheater named as Wanderers' KIA Player of the Month for February

Defender wins award for the first time this season

David Wheater has been voted Bolton Wanderers' KIA Player of the Month for February 2017 by the Club's supporters.

The defender did not miss a minute of the Whites' six outings, scoring in their 2-2 draw away at Bradford City along the way.

Also helping Bolton keep a clean sheet against Rochdale, Wheater finished the month as the Trotters captain in the absence of injured midfield duo Darren Pratley and Jay Spearing.

Supporters voted for the award on Facebook with the 30-year-old clinching an emphatic victory ahead of Gary Madine in second place, with Spearing and Vela sharing third.

Meanwhile, fan Steven Hatton has won hospitality in the Platinum Suite for a game of his choice by voting, where he'll present Wheater with his accolade at an upcoming Wanderers home match.
