WORCESTERSHIRE'S Joe Lolley has been crowned as the PFA Championship player of the month for October after winning a fans' vote.

After scoring three goals and assisting two last month, Nottingham Forest winger Lolley, who hails from Wychbold, received 36 per cent of the vote.

He scored against Millwall, Middlesbrough and Bolton while also chipping in with two assists in the victory at the Riverside Stadium and in the 1-1 draw at Leeds.

Redditch-born Lolley pipped Sheffield United's Billy Sharp, Norwich's Timm Klose, Birmingham's Lukas Jutkiewicz and Jota and QPR's Geoff Cameron to the award.

He first caught the eye with his goal-scoring exploits for Littleton before an impressive spell at Kidderminster Harriers led quickly to a move to Huddersfield Town and then he joined Forest in January.
