Preston North End striker Jermaine Beckford has been named as April’s League One Player of the Month.
And those goals and the crucial points that have gone with them have been vital in earning Beckford this accolade – and the chance to win promotion back to the Championship on Sunday with PNE.
Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “Jermaine Beckford has hit top form at exactly the right time for Preston North End.
“His five April goals have put the Lilywhites in prime position to be promoted to the Sky Bet Championship.”
Beckford fought off competition from Ben Gladwin (Swindon Town), Will Grigg (MK Dons) and James O’Connor (Walsall) for the coveted award.
Everyone at Preston North End would like to congratulate Jermaine on his well-deserved award.
