David McGoldrick has been named the npower League 1 Player of the Month for December.

The front man was the goal scoring force behind Coventry City's great December form, during his loan spell at the Ricoh Arena from Nottingham Forest.

The focal point of the Sky Blues' attack, his positional play and calmness in front of goal were evident as he scored twice against both Walsall and in the 4-1 win at promotion rivals Doncaster Rovers.

The Nottingham Forest striker has now joined npower Championship side Ipswich Town on loan, but his sensational form at Coventry City could not be overlooked.

Commenting from npower, Sponsorship Manager Emma Collins said: "Although he is now with another club, David McGoldrick had a cracking month with Coventry City and was a key contributor to their great run.

"If he can keep up his own form, he should excel at Ipswich Town, but I'm sure Coventry City fans will be grateful for his contribution."
