James Coppinger has been named Player of the Month for August

Coppinger was nominated after scoring twice and creating three goals during the opening month of the campaign.

Coppinger said: “I was buzzing to be nominated for Player of the Month, and to win is brilliant. To get this at the same time as I hopefully make my 500th appearance for this special club is a real honour.

“But the team deserve the credit for our start to the season. I have scored a couple of goals, but it is our team performances which has won us the points.”

Darren Ferguson, Doncaster Rovers Manager, said: “He has been a real influence in games, which is what you want him to be. He knows he has had to get more goals and assists, and he has certainly done that.

“Where we are playing him, we want him to have a real influence in the final third of the pitch. He has had a good month. He is looking fit, and it is a good week for him as it coincides with the 500 games”
