Best Player - Sam Baldock - average rating 7.88
The Bristol City vice captain has been in scintillating form this September and was deservedly awarded the League 1 player of the month award. He has scored 5 goals in the 5 matches this month and is now top of the League 1 scoring charts with 8 goals this season. Particularly pleasing was the quality of his goals as he scored a brace and was MOTM against both Sheff Utd and Shrewsbury. His partnership with Ivan Bolado has really grown and he assisted two of the Equatoguinean's goals in his hat-trick against Newport Co.
Andrew Booy also picked up his first managerial award of his career by winning the League 1 Manager of the Month award for September.
Ivan Bolado - average rating 7.48
Not happy with being in Baldock's shadow Bolado has also excelled this month scoring 4 goals in 5 matches with his perfect hat-trick and MOTM performance in the Johnstone's paint trophy very pleasing. The advanced forward assisted 3 of Baldock's 5 goals so the two are really gelling up top for the Robins.
Karleigh Osborne - average rating 7.32
Has been asked to play at right-back in all 11 matches this season and after starting slowly last month has really made the position his own in September. The Bristol City back 5 was unchanged throughout the 5 games this month and Osborne was the star performer out of the five which conceded only 2 goals during this time. Osborne got one assist against rivals Swindon but his MOTM performance against a good Coventry side was the highlight of his month.
