Christian Doidge says it’s a ‘huge honour’ to win the SPFL’s Player of the Month award after a stellar month for Hibs.
A difficult start to life at Easter Road was put behind him last month with a Doidge renaissance. He’s scored six in his last seven as he now looks like the player Hibs shelled out six figures for.
Speaking to Hibs TV, Doidge says that it’s an amazing feeling to lift the award after an impressive November.
“It’s a great feeling, there are obviously some fantastic players in this league,” Doidge said. “To come out as Player of the Month is an amazing feeling and I’m really proud.
“It’s a huge honour to win it on behalf of Hibs. I’ve scored a few goals and hopefully there are many more goals to come. I was just waiting for a little bit of luck and that goal at St Johnstone gave me a bit of confidence. Hopefully the goals will come quickly.”
A Hibs first since 2013
It’ll be a big confidence boost for Doidge to win this. After two goals in his first 15 appearances, to come back with almost a goal every game over his last seven is quite impressive.
It’s earned him his reward and a Hibs first since 2013. He’s the first Hibee to win the POTM trophy since Leigh Griffiths did back in 2013.
Goals are coming regularly to him now and that’ll be a lift for everyone at the club,. Hibs missed a clinical goalscorer in the early stages of this campaign so they’ll be relieved that Doidge is starting to pick up speed.
