The Wales international forward netted four goals in four games, including a picture-book header against Wolverhampton Wanderers as the Clarets won three and drew one.

And after helping his side continue their scintillating run of 17 games without defeat, Vokes was pleased to accept the award.

He said: “It’s always nice to be recognised and we’ve had a good month as a team and personally and we’re looking for another good month.

“It was March last time I won it so it would be nice to follow it up with the same outcome of promotion.

“It’s a nice award to get but as a collective we’ve been great over the past month to six weeks. It reflects where we are as a team.”
