Flint Named February Player Of The Month

Aden Flint has been named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for February.

Benefitting from City reverting to a back four, the towering centre-back proved his worth at both ends of the pitch.

Flint helped preserve three clean sheets and headed home three corners in wins over Ipswich Town and Nottingham Forest.

Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson said: “I’ve really enjoyed working with Aden since I arrived at the club and I’m delighted he’s won this award, it’s fully deserved.

“Aden has the potential to play as high as he wants.”

Flint said: “It’s been a great month for the team and I’m sure the goals I managed to score will have played a part in the award.

“Thanks to the staff and the rest of the lads for playing their part. We’re now looking forward to securing enough points to maintain our Championship status.”

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “The towering defender picks up the Championship Player of the Month award on the back of three headed goals in February, which have without doubt given Bristol City a realistic chance of survival.

“Flint has proven over a long period of time to be equally adept in both areas, highlighted by the fact he has already notched a goal in March too.”

Sky Bet football trading manager Paul Lowery said: “After 14 goals in League One last year it was always assumed that Aden Flint would weigh in with a few this season for Bristol City.

“However, scoring three from centre-back in a month where the Robins started to move towards safety is what has guaranteed Flint the individual award this month.

“Arguably his best feat of the month was scoring twice in a hard-fought win over Ipswich, with the price of a Flint brace offered at 40/1.

“As well as finding the net three times, Flint marshalled the backline to contribute to four key victories, including a battling 1-0 away win at fellow relegation rivals Charlton Athletic.

“When the month started City were seen as a realistic candidate for the drop at odds of 6/4, but a string of good performances now means they are more of an outside bet at 7/1.”

The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League head of communications John Nagle; League Managers Association director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet's Paul Lowery.
