Sammy Ameobi has been named Bolton Wanderers Player of the Month for October.

The former Newcastle United and Middlesbrough player scored three goals in four league games last month as Phil Parkinson’s men maintained an unbeaten run in the Championship.

Ameobi who joined the Macron Stadium outfit from Newcastle United as a free agent in July amassed 69.3% of the total votes ahead of Gary Madine and Karl Henry both of whom finished second and third respectively.

“Sammy Ameobi has been voted Bolton Wanderers' KIA Player of the Month for October 2017 by the club's supporters,” read a statement on the club's website.

“Having made his return from injury in late-September, the Whites forward scored three times to return with a bang as Bolton went unbeaten throughout October.

“Marking his second home debut for the club with a goal in the Trotters' 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday, Ameobi was also on the scoresheet in away draws with Fulham and Sunderland”

The left-footed winger was on parade in the Whites’ 0-0 draw against Preston North End on Friday and will hope to help return them to winning ways when Reading come visiting in Tuesday’s Championship game.
