Tyrese Campbell has been nominated for Championship player of the month in October.
The 20-year-old has found fine form over the past few weeks under Michael O’Neill, whether operating from the right, left or down the middle.
Last month he set up goals against Birmingham and Luton as well as a couple against Brentford, he also scored against Barnsley and Brentford. He also helped the club qualify for the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.
The EFL citation says: “Four goals and two assists in six games fail to capture fully the 20-year-old’s natural footballing intelligence. Playing as a wide striker, his sense of when and how to deliver a cross is uncanny, while his finishing was seen by a curler against Brentford.”
Campbell is up against Brentford striker Ivan Toney, Reading front man Lucas Joao and Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul.
Ironically, he was beaten to Stoke’s own player of the month vote by centre-back Harry Souttar.
Norwich’s Daniel Farke, Barnsley’s Valerien Ismael, Reading’s Veljko Paunovic and Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock are nominated for manager of the month.
The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
The winner will be announced tomorrow.
