Swindon Town striker Simon Cox has been named League One Powerade Player of the Month for March.
Cox enjoyed a superb month netting eight goals in eight games to help boost Swindon's survival fight.
The highly-rated forward beat Leeds hit-man Jermaine Beckford, Scunthorpe striker Gary Hooper and Peterborough's Chris Whelpdale to the award.
Cox bagged a hat-trick against Northampton, a brace apiece against both Southend and Hereford and also found the target in Swindon's defeat to Colchester.
Awards panel chief Chris Kamara said: "Simon Cox is simply a goal machine. All the big clubs have had a look at him and you can see why.
"He's beginning to reach his full potential and his goals have helped Swindon stay clear of the League One relegation zone."
