The Scot was stretchered off in the Owls’ 1-0 FA Cup win at Premier League Brighton on Saturday in what was his first start since laying low with a virus during the final three games of December.

He scored four goals in the month, including both goals in a memorable comeback win over promotion rivals Brentford on December 7.

It is his second player of the month award this season, having taken home the gong for September.
