Jacob Murphy has won a second award for his successful November with loan club Coventry City.

The Norwich City youngster, on a season long loan with the Sky Blues, has won the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award after scoring six goals in six matches last month.

His form also saw him claim the PFA Fans Player of the month award for League One earlier this week, as the Canaries youngster continues to forge a reputation for himself in the lower league.

Coventry boss Tony Mowbray said: 'Jacob Murphy had a terrific November for us and I'm delighted he's getting the recognition he deserves.

'He's a young lad who has progressed well during his time at the club, and he is also great to work with on the training pitch.

'We were missing Adam Armstrong and Ryan Kent for the 3-1 win over Colchester United and he really stepped up that day to get a brace at his former club.

'He followed that up with a brilliant 10-minute hat-trick against Gillingham and hopefully he can continue to learn and develop with us throughout the 2015/16 season.'

The 20-year-old has so far scored seven goals in 21 games in all competitions for Coventry.

Along with twin brother Josh, also on a season-long loan, with Championship side MK Dons, Murphy is contracted to the Canaries until the summer of 2017 having risen to prominence as part of City's FA Youth Cup winning squad in 2013.

The judging panel for the Football League award was made up of Sky Sports' Football League expert Don Goodman, Football League head of communications John Nagle, League Managers Association director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet football trading manager Paul Lowery.

Goodman added: 'Murphy's hat-trick against Gillingham was a joy to watch. His pace and finishing ability have set the Norwich City loanee apart.

'The winger has been virtually unplayable at times throughout November and Tony Mowbray will be hopeful he can keep this form up into the New Year.'
