ARNAUT Danjuma has been named Championship player of the month after a sensational run of form in April.

The Dutchman, who was also nominated for the award in March, took the trophy this time around ahead of Barnsley ace Daryl Dike, Birmingham defender Harlee Dean and QPR striker Lyndon Dykes.

Danjuma said: “I’m very happy to lift this trophy and very happy with the way I’ve been playing.

“If I can contribute to the team and help them to get the wins then I’m happy, and I feel like I’ve been doing that.

“My favourite moment of April was the goal against Norwich where I scored in the top corner. It was a very important game for the team and a huge win for us.

“This is a great trophy but the biggest one for us is to hopefully get back into the Premier League.”

Danjuma scored or assisted 10 of Cherries' 18 goals in April as the club won six games in succession to secure their end-of-season play-off spot.

That included goals against Blackburn, Coventry, Norwich and Millwall.

Sky Sports EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “Danjuma has been one of the most consistent players in the Championship down the stretch, and he was impossible to ignore in regards to this award.

“The attacker was nothing short of sensational in April, racking up 10 direct goal involvements during Bournemouth’s strong run of form.”
