On-loan Swansea City striker Oli McBurnie has won the Championship player of the month award for February.

McBurnie has made a superb start to life in the second tier after joining Barnsley on loan until the end of the season in the January transfer window.

He scored his fifth goal in six appearances for the Tykes in the 2-1 defeat at Cardiff in midweek.

Four of those goals came during February, and McBurnie has won the player of the month prize ahead of Sheffield United star Billy Sharp, Cardiff’s Sean Morrison and Fulham defender Tim Ream.
