Rotherham United striker Kieran Agard has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month for April.

After being used in a wide role, he began operating more centrally in April and scored five goals in six games.

Rotherham manager Steve Evans said: "This is just what the lad deserves.

"He's got 25 goals this season and 90% of those coming when he's played from a wide position.

"Unless you're scoring four a game, to get as many goals as him you need to be spreading them over the course of the season and he's been consistently good.

"Kieran has a great enthusiasm for the game. He's a very honest, hard-working guy and is enjoying his football at the moment."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "If you hit 20 goals in a season you are near the top of your game.

"Kieran is bang in form and that will give Rotherham a great chance of living the dream and becoming a Championship club come the end of May."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: "Kieran's memorable hat-trick at Molineux has helped him hit the magical 20-goal mark this season."
