Cardiff Official Site - WHITTS WINS OCTOBER AWARD -
- Cardiff City midfielder Peter Whittingham has been named Coca-Cola Championship player of the month for October.
- Whitts had a fantastic October, netting seven goals in four league games. He opened the month with a double strike in the Bluebirds'4-0 win at Watford, their first triumph at Vicarage Road since 1970. He followed that up by scoring the equaliser to clinch City a point against Crystal Palace.
- Then he stepped up to score a penalty in the 2-0 win over Coventry and he ended the month in brilliant style with a headline-grabbing hat-trick in a thrilling 4-3 win at Sheffield United.
- Whitts, took the October title by fighting off competition from Chris Weale of Leicester City, Adel Taarabt of Queens Park Rangers and Swansea City's Alan Tate.
- The Cardiff star said: "I don't quite know where the goals are coming from, but as long as they keep coming, I'm happy. The gaffer has told me to be more confident in my shooting and have a go from anywhere,, and that has helped.
"I'm also taking the penalties, and they're all going in. At the monent, I'm making it difficult for the keepers because I change my approach every time.
"I think I was concussed when I scored from the spot at Watford. The ball had hit me about 30 seconds befoe and I was still coming round.
- "It was good to score against Palace, but it was extra satisfying against Coventry because they let me go when I was 16. It's always a good feeling when you do that against a club who thought you weren't good enough.
- "It was an amazing feeling to get the hat-trick at Sheffield United, where my third was the result of a fanatstic move involving Ropss, Chops, and then Jay, who crossed the ball for me to score."-..." Cardiff
