Peterborough United striker Dwight Gayle has been named the npower Championship Player of the Month for December.

It was a hugely successful month for Gayle as the 22-year-old front man scored in every game, and completed his move from Dagenham and Redbridge after an initial loan move.

A brilliant long-range opener against Middlesbrough and a delightful hooked finish against Bolton Wanderers were the pick of his seven goals in six December matches.

Commenting from npower, Sponsorship Manager Emma Collins said: "It was clearly a very happy Christmas for both winners [in the npower Championship]. Peterborough United have clearly unearthed a natural goal scorer in Dwight Gayle."
