Blackburn Rovers’ Marcus Antonsson has taken the new PFA Fans’ Player of the Month Award for November.

The 26 year old is on loan at Ewood Park this season from Leeds United and across the month of November he scored three times in four games to continue Blackburn’s hopes of a return to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Having hit a brace against Bury, he added to his tally in matches against Oxford United and Blackpool, and he scored a fifth in their FA Cup clash with Barnet at the beginning of November.

Antonsson took 42% of the vote, with teammate Charlie Mulgrew in second place with 18% of the vote.

Vital Football announced in October that we would be assisting in giving fans the opportunity to vote in The PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Month Awards. Vital Football are part of the Snack Media set up, and Snack Media are the new digital media partner of the Professional Footballers Association of England and Wales for the next three years and they have revamped the PFA’s monthly awards.

Over those days, and during the voting hours for each division, fans will automatically see the voting widget appear at the bottom of articles on the network.

The shortlists for each vote (six players) will be drawn up with regular panellists from both the PFA and the Snack Media Group and they will be joined by monthly guest panellists which will include former players, managers, officials, journalists, social media influencers and fans themselves.
