We started off the season very brightly and we found ourselves in a play-off position. Our aim was to continue our impressive form and to keep pressing for a play-off spot. This is how we did:
A small glance at these results can tell you how well we played. We started off the month with a thrilling win over Middlesbrough. We then went from strength-to-strength with comfortable wins over Leicester and Huddersfield. We then narrowly beat Wolves, before being held to a draw away at Swansea. We then finished the month with a win away to Derby. Five wins and a draw from six games is fantastic and I am delighted with our form so far.
Player of the Month
Callum Walker is my player of the month for September. He has been in incredible form so far this season and he has been pivotal with our successes so far. His creativity has been fantastic, and he also scored four goals this month. He has been a key player for us and I can't wait to see him progress even further.
Our fantastic form has put us top of the table with 27 points from 11 games, which is fantastic! We are unbeaten so far, which is brilliant, and we have a Goal Difference of +11. Everton our two points behind us with a game in hand so they can overtake us, but just to be in the top two would be wonderful. We are playing fantastic football and it is evident on the league table.
Mark Bunn was signed to play in the first team for this season. The 34 year old goalkeeper is very experienced and his qualities should be useful for just the one season. Our goal is to earn promotion, and hopefully he can do the short-term job that we require.
Lee Cattermole is an experienced English center midfielder. Well documented for his card total at Sunderland, Lee Cattermole is a very fiery player. He will add that determination and grit to our midfield. Will he stay with us for more than one season? That is yet to be seen.
We have tough games next month and I will be targeting nine points of fifteen. If we can achieve this, we are doing very well and showing good signs of progress.
