Midfield ace Holman wins player of the month award for September

Brett Holman's superb performances against West Brom and Swansea City have seen him scoop Villa's player of the month award for September.

Holman, a summer arrival from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, claimed the award after topping the man-of-the-match polls in the win over Swansea and Sunday's derby draw against the Baggies.

It means the Australian received three points each for the two man-of-the-match displays, as well as a point each for the Newcastle and Southampton clashes when he finished third in the polls.

Another new signing, Joe Bennett, was runner-up against West Brom with two points and goalscorer Darren Bent in third with one point.

Holman has surged to the top of the Terrace Trophy table, where he is tied with Karim El Ahmadi on eight points.

Last season's Terracy Trophy winner Stephen Ireland is third with six points, while Ron Vlaar, Bent and Brad Guzan all have four points.

The points from all the games will be calculated at the end of the season and the winner will receive the supporters player of the year award - the Terrace Trophy.

Previous winners of this prestigious award include Gareth Barry, Stiliyan Petrov, James Milner, Dennis Mortimer and Nigel Sims.
