Nigerian forward Emmanuel Dennis has received the Player of the Month and Goal of the Month awards respectively for December at Watford.
Dennis, who has so far scored eight Premier League goals from 17 appearances, managed to beat Moussa Sissoko, and Golden Girls Emma Beckett and Georgie Ferguson.
“Emmanuel Dennis has been crowned the winner of both the Stake Player of the Month and Goal of the Month awards for December,” Watford confirmed in a statement on their official website.
“The in-form forward hit the ground running during the first half of his maiden Premier League season and has now clinched the Player of the Month gong for the third time [August, November, and December].
“In the POTM competition the Nigeria international was positioned against Men’s teammate Moussa Sissoko, and Golden Girls Emma Beckett and Georgie Ferguson.”
The two awards come just a week after Dennis failed to link up with the Nigeria squad for the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The forward was among the players named in the squad for the competition by Interim Coach Austin Eguavoen, but Watford allegedly refused to release him.
Nigeria are pooled in Group D of the competition alongside Egypt, Guinea-Bissau, and Sudan and they will open their campaign with a game against the Pharaohs at Roumde Adjia Stadium on January 11.
Dennis will be in line to feature for Watford when they travel to take on Leicester City in the third round of the FA Cup at King Power Stadium on Saturday.
