Vokes said: “It’s a great feeling winning the awards, especially as it’s down to the fans really and they’re the people who come week in week out.

“It’s great to be recognised by them.

“I won ‘moment of the season’ for the Blackburn header last season, but this year obviously tops it.

“It’s been a great season.

“It’s been a great few days; great for the lads to seal promotion and it’s good that we haven’t left it down to the last day of the season so that we can celebrate events like this.”
