The second tier's top scorer, who picked up this award in October, netted three times and assisted twice for The Bees last month, as we took another seven points in the Sky Bet Championship.

Ivan opened the month by providing the cross for Saman Ghoddos' winner against Luton Town and then netted a hat-trick, and grabbed an assist, as we put seven past Wycombe Wanderers at the Brentford Community Stadium ten days ago.

Despite that form, the prize went to Rotherham United's Matt Crooks for his trio of goals during January. The Rotherham man took top spot with 40 per cent of the fans' vote with Ivan behind on 37 per cent.

There's another chance for Ivan, as well as winger Tariqe Fosu, with voting now open in the Bristol Street Motors' PFA Player of the Month poll.
