Lasse Vibe misses out on PFA Player of the Month prize

Bees striker beaten to award by Leeds United's Pontus Jansson

11 January 2018

Four goals last month wasn't enough to see Lasse Vibe pick up the PFA Bristol Street Motors Championship Player of the Month award for December.

The Danish striker was included on the six-man shortlist after netting four goals in three games over the Christmas week. He struck twice in the 2-1 win away at Norwich City and followed that up with a goal in the home wins over Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday to end the year. 

However, it was Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson who picked up the award having scored twice in a five match unbeaten run which moved The Whites back into the top six. The Swedish international also beat Gary Madine [Bolton Wanderers], Chris Maxwell [Preston North End], Jamie Paterson [Bristol City], and Curtis Davies [Derby County] to the prize.

Another Brentford player in contention for a monthly award after a fine December is Romaine Sawyers. The midfielder is on the four-man shortlist for the EFL Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month gong, alongside Jansson, Paterson, and Derby County's Scott Carson. The winner of which will be announced on tomorrow morning.
