Though he is yet to assume the legendary status of former Super Eagles captain Austin Okocha at Bolton Wanderers, Sammy Ameobi is pulling his weight and his effort is definitely being recognised.

The fast-improving striker has been voted Bolton Wanderers' KIA Player of the Month for October 2017 by the club's supporters.

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.
