Jordan collects February's Sky Bet League One prize
Millwall keeper Jordan Archer has won the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award for February.
The 22-year-old beat off competition from James Hanson of Bradford, Barnsley's Alfie Mawson and Swindon forward Nicky Ajose to win the latest monthly award having kept three clean sheets in Millwall's five League games during February.
"It's very pleasing to have my own form recognised in this way but the award is really for my team-mates, the manager and the rest of the coaching staff for their great work in the past few weeks," Archer told millwallfc.co.uk.
"We've been in brilliant form and as a goalkeeper it is always your main objective to keep clean sheets, but ultimately that is down to the players in front of you to play well as a unit, which we have been doing.
"I just want to thank everyone at the club for helping to give me the platform to go out there and perform on a matchday, especially my goalkeeping coach, Kevin Pressman, whose guidance has been crucial in my career so far."
Neil Harris added: "It's a fantastic achievement for Jordan to have won this award and I'm really proud of him.
"His development has been first class this season and he fully deserves the recognition that winning this award will give him."
Archer is the second Millwall player to win a Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award this season after Aiden O'Brien picked up the prize for October.
