Watford striker Matej Vydra has been named the npower Championship Player of the Month for January.

The 20-year-old sharpshooter started three npower Championship games in the month and bagged a brace in all of them.

His pace, control and natural scoring prowess helped earn Watford wins over Middlesbrough, Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest in a strong January for the Hornets.

Commenting from npower, Partnership and Sponsorship Manager Katy Thomas said: "It was clearly a very happy start to the year for both winners in the Championship.

"I'm sure Leicester City fans will be looking for more of the same to really add weight to their promotion hopes, while Watford fans will be hoping that Matej Vydra's non-stop goals can fire them into the Premier League."
