Ross Forbes picks up Player of the Month award

Top scorer Ross Forbes was today named as the Ladbrokes Championship Player of the Month for January and received his award at Parklea.

The whole team were in fine form throughout the period under consideration, recording consecutive wins against Dumbarton, Raith Rovers, Falkirk, and Ayr United.

On an individual level, midfielder Forbes, who has 10 goals for the campaign, had a magnificent month, scoring four times – one of which is in the running for goal of the month – and registering one assist in his four appearances.

The 27-year-old is the third Ton man to receive such recognition this term after Thomas O’Ware and manager Jim Duffy picked up the monthly accolades in an October double.

Duffy said: “I’m delighted for Ross. We had a number of players who performed at a high level right throughout the month of January, but obviously Ross, with the goals he’s scored and the assists he’s had, has more than deserved the award.

“For players, it’s always good to receive acknowledgement for their performances and the work they put in, and hopefully Ross can continue that form for the remainder of the season.”
