Rudy gets April award

2 May 2014

Blackburn Rovers striker Rudy Gestede has been named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for April.

His six goals in six starts saw the likeable frontman ensure Rovers remained unbeaten in April, with Gestede's achievements acknowledged.

On winning the award the 25-year-old said: "It means a lot, it is my first trophy since I came to England so I am very happy to get this.

"It has been a very good month for me and the team, I have scored my first hat-trick and we have won games and stayed unbeaten.

"I am very happy, we have finished very well this season as a team."

Gary Bowyer felt that the decision to name Gestede Player of the Month was richly deserved.

"Without a doubt he has been absolutely outstanding," said the Rovers boss. "His goals have backed up his play and his value to the team massively.

"He's a top lad, nothing is a problem for him and he has really been a fantastic signing for us."

Rovers have a second player earning monthly honours as Josh Morris was named as Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month.

The on-loan Fleetwood Town midfielder scored two key goals to earn the Cody Army vital points to ensure a play-off place for Graham Alexander's side.

The Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month Award went to Rotherham United striker Kieran Agard.
