Aleksandar Mitrovic nominated for Championship player of the month
Aleksandar Mitrovic has been nominated for the March Championship player of the month award.
The Newcastle loan striker is up against Patrick Bamford of Middlesbrough, Sean Maguire of Preston North End and Millwall defender Shaun Hutchinson.
Mitro has scored eight goals in his last eight Fulham appearances and these include five in five in March.
Overall, the 11 matches the Serbian striker has appeared in, have produced 27 points from a possible 33 – with eight wins and three draws.
This is the EFL Official website write-up:
Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham)
“Has provided the missing piece of the Fulham puzzle since joining on loan in January.
“His strength and ability to hold the ball up, bringing teammates into play, have been matched by his finishing ability with five goals in as many games.”
As well as Mitro’s nomination his Fulham boss is also up for the manager award for March.
Slavisa Jokanovic led Fulham to four wins and a draw in March and must surely have a great chance, as well as Mitro, of picking up the award for last month.
He was also nominated in January and February but didn’t win.
This time he is up against Milwall’s Neil Harris, Neil Warnock of Cardiff, as well as Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
Winners of both awards will be announced tomorrow (Friday 6 April).
