Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has today been named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for September.

The front man scored four goals in September – two in each of the home wins over Middlesbrough and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Blues boss Mick McCarthy said: “We’re delighted to see David pick up this award and it’s well deserved.

“He was excellent for us last season when he joined on loan. But he has stepped up another level this year.

“What I like about him is that he’s not happy with how he played on Tuesday night (in the 4-4 draw at Derby).

“Well I thought he had a great first half. That’s nice when he’s won that and is still not happy with how he’s played.”

The Sky Bet League One Player of the Month Award went to Leyton Orient striker David Mooney.

Meanwhile, McCarthy believes left-back Aaron Cresswell is another of his players who has made big improvements at the start of the new campaign.

The 23-year-old scored and provided three assists from set-pieces at Pride Park on Tuesday night, backing up McCarthy’s claim that Town have the best left-back in the division.

“He’s got such a good left foot,” said the Blues boss.

“I’m constantly harping on to him about delivery, delivery, delivery.

“He has improved his football. He doesn’t just try and put his crosses in from anywhere anymore, he is more considered.”
