Team effort helped Lansbury get award

9 December 2016

Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury praised the work of everyone at the club after being named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for November.

Lansbury was given the award, beating Derby County’s Tom Ince, Birmingham City goalkeeper Tomasz Kuzsczak and Brighton midfielder Steve Sidwell to the prize, having played a key role in ensuring The Reds remained unbeaten in November.

A 1-1 draw at home to Queens Park Rangers was followed by two away wins - 2-0 at Ipswich and 5-2 against Barnsley - with Lansbury scoring a hat-trick in the win at Oakwell.

He said: "It is fantastic to be given this award and to be recognised for the hard work that has gone in over the last month. 

"I was delighted to score my first career hat-trick in the win over Barnsley, but it was more important to get the three points from a brilliant team performance.

"The award may have been given to me but it is recognition for the hard work that the whole team has put in to turn things around and go unbeaten in November.

"We had been on a bad run but we came together as a group to get back on track. The work of all of the coaching staff and support staff behind the scenes has been a big factor in helping us to climb the league table, making it easier for us to go out on the pitch and get results.

"It is now up to us to maintain this form and keep picking up points, starting with the game against Derby on Sunday."
