Who is our Championship player of the month for October?

Bournemouth AFC player huddle

AFC Bournemouth, Fulham and Leeds United stars all feature as candidates.

October was a very important month in the Championship with several sides seeing their positions change from September.

Leeds United went winless throughout the month and there’s no clear runaway leader at the top of the table and several players produced positive performances for their respective clubs.

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson was the highest scorer in the Championship, helping the side into a position where they are now challenging for the lead in the division. He’s been superb and has scored a variety of goals already this season.

In terms of assists, things were split right down the middle between Bournemouth pair Simon Francis and Matt Ritchie and Fulham duo Lasse Christensen and Ross McCormack.

Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri is one of the few players who can look at October and be happy with his consistency. He produced more saves than any other player over the course of last month.

Another Leeds United star, Tommaso Bianchi, was the most effective player in terms of making the highest number of tackles, but his teammates don’t appear to have been on the same wavelength in terms of reaping the rewards of his best efforts.

Our award for October, perhaps a little unsurprisingly, goes to Wilson because he produced the goods to get his team into a fantastic position.
