First team

Vote for your February POTM!


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Jefferson Lerma, Adam Smith, Philip Billing and Cameron Carter-Vickers have been put forward for the the February player of the month award, sponsored by Hendy.

In an action-packed month featuring as many as eight games, the highlights came in the four wins against Birmingham City, Burnley, Rotherham United and, most recently, Watford on Saturday.

We've listed the four top players from the run of fixtures, which you can read and then vote for over on Twitter.

Jefferson Lerma played in all eight matches across the month, and while he was unable to add to his goal tally for the season he has continued to excel during the high-intensity run of games.

The Colombian's influence has led to incoming head coach Jonathan Woodgate saying his midfielder is "one of the first names on the team sheet."

Cherries stalwart Adam Smith has had another stellar month, playing in all of February's Championship fixtures.

As ever, the energetic full-back has provided overlapping runs and dangerous crosses while also retaining his defensive mettle, the side keeping four clean sheets during the month.

Loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers had only made two appearances in the Cherries first team before February, but has quickly cemented himself as a vital component in the side's backline. 

Quickly striking a strong defensive partnership with captain Steve Cook, but showing his versatility in terms of both formation and personnel, the defender also performed well after switching to the right-back role in the away win at Premier League Burnley.

With two matchwinners in as many home game in February, Philip Billing ensured that he couldn't be left out of our poll. 

The Dane helped earn six crucial points with winners against Birmingham City and Rotherham United, and also caught the eye with a commanding performance and outrageous knockdown to Sam Surridge (performed with his back) at Turf Moor.

To have your say and pick your favoured winner, head over to Twitter and vote in our poll.

The club would like to thank Hendy for their support of the club's player of the month award.
