Darlow produced a Player of the Match performance in the 2-0 win against play-off chasing West Brom at the beginning of the month. Darlow saw off competition from Lewie Coyle and Benjamin Tetteh for the award by securing a whopping 84% of the votes – thoroughly deserved after making six important saves against the Baggies.
Making a further nine saves in the games against Coventry, Burnley and Reading, the experienced goalkeeper has continued to flourish under the management of Liam Rosenior.
