Cardiff City striker Michael Chopra has been named September's Powerade Player of the Month in The Championship.
The former Newcastle United hit-man joins Crewe Alexandra's Nicky Maynard from League One and Lincoln City's Mark Stallard from League Two in claiming the latest monthly player awards.
Chopra's goals have helped The Bluebirds to the summit of The Championship, with the striker having averaged a goal per match during the month.
Maynard takes the League One award after netting four goals for The Railwaymen in September, with Dario Gradi's side a point outside the play-off places in the division.
Stallard claimed the award in League Two after finding the scoresheet four times for The Imps, with the Sincil Bank club two points behind leaders Walsall in the table as a result.
