NEILSON AND SHANKLAND AWARD DOUBLE

NEILSON AND SHANKLAND AWARD DOUBLE

Published: 10th September 2019

Dundee United have scooped a double in the Ladbrokes Championship monthly awards for August.

Head Coach Robbie Neilson has landed the Ladbrokes Championship Manager of the Month trophy and striker Lawrence Shankland receives the Ladbrokes Championship Player of the Month award.

Faced with a demanding four-game schedule against potential title rivals, Robbie guided the Terrors to four wins out of four to underline the Club’s title challenge.

Convincing home wins over Inverness CT (4-1) and Dundee (6-2) sandwiched impressive away victories at Partick Thistle (2-1) and Dunfermline Athletic (2-0).

Making a major contribution to those wins was summer signing Shankland who found the net in every game. With an eight-goal haul - four v Inverness, one v Partick, a double at Dunfermline and one against Dundee in United’s 6-2 derby win - he has started off where he left off last season, as the division’s top scorer.
