Forde short-listed for Championship award

6 November 2014

Lions keeper David on four-man short-list

Millwall goalkeeper David Forde has been short-listed for the Sky Bet Championship October Player of the Month. The winner will be announced on Friday 7th November.

Fordey was in sensational form for The Lions during October, helping his team keep three clean sheets in four games at Derby County (0-0), Wigan Athletic (0-0) and then producing a stunning double save to thwart Cardiff City before Danny Shittu's goal secured a 1-0 Millwall win.

The goalkeeper, who was also played a key role for the Republic of Ireland in their 1-1 draw with World Cup holders Germany, is on a four-man short-list alongside Nottingham Forest winger Michail Antonio, Bakary Sako from Wolves and AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, who scored five goals in four games last month.

The judging panel comprises 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.

Sky Bet are the title Sponsor of The Football League. This season, a £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund will go to a Football League club to spend on players in the January 2015 transfer window. 

Fans who bet with Sky Bet generate Transfer Fund Tokens and go into a random draw to win a £5,000 prize – and the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund for their Football League club.
