Don Goodman has given Aleksandar Mitrovic rave reviews as the Newcastle loan striker tears it up at Fulham.
Goodman was a Sunderland star in the early 90s and Mitro helped send the Mackems on their way to League One as rock bottom finishers, with yet another quality winner last weekend.
Don Goodman has been very impressed and as one of the EFL panel, has now awarded Championship player of the month to Mitro for a second month in a row.
Mitro has scored 12 goals in his last 13 games for Fulham and helping them to secure a play-off spot and still a possibility of automatic promotion
Don Goodman wonder s just how much better Fulham could have done if Aleksandar Mitrovic had been at Craven Cottage all season…
Former Sunderland striker and now pundit, Don Goodman was part of the judging panel:
“Back to back awards for the striker who can’t stop scoring.
“Goals in all but one of April’s games proved the difference for Fulham in their crusade to pile the pressure on Cardiff.
“You wonder how good Fulham’s season could’ve been had he been there from the start.”
Sky Bet EFL trader Mikey Mumford was also one of the judges deciding the Championship player of the month award:
“It takes something special to scoop back-to-back player of month awards but Mitrovic’s fine form in March has shown no signs of slowing into April.
“He plays with the steely determination you need to succeed in the Championship and the passion for his loan club is there for all to see.
“Goals in all but one of Fulham’s six games in the month and an even bigger role could await if Fulham are to navigate their way through the Play-Offs.”
Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic on Aleksandar Mitrovic:
“He’s had a huge impact.
“He showed the quality he has fighting with this team and he’s doing a great job for us.
“We’re very satisfied to have him and we hope he’s going to play a big part in Fulham’s promotion.”
“It feels great.
“I’m glad for the award but I’m even happier that the team is doing well and keep winning games.
“We have one game to go before the end of the regular season, so we have to focus on this game to try and win and see what happens with Cardiff.
“Coming to Fulham has gone much better than I could have ever expected and I hope it can continue.”
