Christian Burgess has been named the PFA Bristol Street Motors League One Player of the Month for January.
In a public poll run by fan-engagement experts Snack Media, the Pompey centre-back comfortably received the most votes.
He saw off fierce competition from Gillingham’s John Akinde, Rotherham’s Dan Barlaser, Sunderland’s Chris Maguire, Coventry’s Sam McCallum and Peterborough’s Ivan Toney.
Burgess played in all eight games as the Blues went through the month unbeaten and scored the winning goal at Bolton.
He follows in the footsteps of team-mate Ronan Curtis, who won the award in both November and December.
