Ipswich Town striker Kayden Jackson has been nominated for the Sky Bet Player of the Month for League One in August.
The 25-year-old has had a great start to the current season, with four goals from seven outings. All four came in a run of three matches, a late winner against Wimbledon followed by a brace in the game with a young Bolton side.
He capped off August with a goal against Shrewsbury taking his tally to four, a feat that’s now been recognised by the award panel.
Jackson had a tough year at Ipswich after his move from Accrington. He bagged just four times in 38 matches and found himself marginalised in the Championship. Following their relegation and the arrival of James Norwood, it might have been the case that he faded into the background.
Instead, he’s thriving at the lower level and looks to be a key part of Paul Lambert’s plans moving into the autumn period. It’s a just reward for his efforts that he’s been nominated and it’s something the supporters are delighted to see as well.
They moved to congratulate the striker on his award, pointing out that he’s certainly proven a point at Portman Road.

Reading the article on @efl website it mentions Jackson’s 4 goals from open play. So they aren’t counting Norwood’s penalties!

Let’s just thank our lucky stars that we’ve got to a point where there’s more than one person in the team who deserves an award!

Congrats Kayden well deserved & a great answer to those giving you stick last season but just one question. I though @jnorwood_10 had already won the award.
