Madger Gomes has been named the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month for September.
The elegant Spaniard strode through opposing defences carrying the ball forward at will in September and scoring a goal in every game. His goals were easy on the eye too – a left-footed curler, a long-range effort and a stinging strike.
Gomes said: "I’ve been playing regularly and working hard to help the team, and every time I wear the shirt I give my best wherever the manager needs me.
"I think the goals have been a result of playing with more confidence, I know the league better now and have a better reading of the game.
“I’ve managed to work myself into space to receive the ball in good areas, and that’s when I’ve been able to get my shots away.”
Darren Moore added: "We're all delighted for Madger. He's had an excellent start to the season and added goals to his game which has been great for both him and the team.
"It's wonderful for him to have been recognised like this and it's a testament to the way he and the team have started the season."
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman added: “When you score a goal from midfield in every game of a calendar month, it should come as little wonder when the accolades come swiftly after.
“Madger Gomes was a revelation for Rovers in September and richly deserves this award.
“The Spaniard produced some wonderful strikes for Doncaster, with each giving the sense that it was a real shame there were no fans in the ground to fully appreciate his outstanding performances.”
Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “Madger Gomes was in outstanding form for Doncaster during September.
“The Spanish midfielder scored a goal in every game as he helped Rovers to two wins and a draw.
“Sky Bet rated Rovers rated as a mid-table outfit before the season started, but after some eye-catching performances from Gomes in particular we have gradually been increasing their rating each week and if they can finish where they are now in the Play-Off places, this would represent a very good season for Darren Moore’s team. They are 2/1 to finish in the top six from 4/1 a month ago.”
