Norwich City’s Simeon Jackson named Championship Player of the Month

Norwich City's in-form striker Simeon Jackson has been named Championship Player of the Month for April after scoring eight goals in six appearances.

Jackson's goals included hat-tricks against Scunthorpe United and Derby County at Carrow Road, as well as City's third goal in their 5-1 derby demolition of Ipswich Town at Portman Road and the equaliser in the Canaries' 2-2 draw at Watford.

The Canadian striker continued his good form into May after his goal in a 1-0 win at Portsmouth on Monday ensured Norwich City's promotion to the Premier League.

Sky Sports' Football League expert Peter Beagrie sits on the npower Player of the Month judging panel and he said: 'After going more than 20 games without a goal, Jackson produced a show of true marksmanship in April.

'He began May in similar style, scoring the most important goal of his career to secure Norwich an automatic promotion spot.'

npower Head of Sponsorship Emma Collins said: 'Jackson has been the star of a wonderful Norwich side in recent weeks.

'To find the net eight times in one month is superb form, which Jackson will no doubt hope to replicate next season.'
