It’s the second time the 24-year-old has scooped a Goal of the Month award, winning the prize back in December for his solo effort against Ipswich Town.

Bamford bagged over 60 per cent of the public vote for his effort against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

  1. Patrick Bamford v Sunderland 63%
  2. Adama Traore v Reading 22%
  3. Tyrone O’Neill v Birmingham City Under-23s 10%
  4. Rudy Gestede v Hull City 5%

Bamford now leads the way with two Goal of the Month accolades, with previous winners also including George Friend, George Miller, Lewis Wing, Marcus Tavernier and Britt Assombalonga.
