Bradford City striker Nahki Wells has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month for August.

Wells made an effortless step up in class following promotion from League 2 with five goals in as many matches.

Bradford manager Phil Parkinson said: "This award is thoroughly deserved and a just reward for Nahki's brilliant efforts. I am sure Nahki will be keen to kick on now and keep improving further."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: "Nahki Wells has carried on the form that fired Bradford to Play-Off Final ecstasy and into this season's Sky Bet League 1.

"This included a brace in the derby victory over Sheffield United which has cemented the Bantams' strong start to the season."
