West Ham United's Ademipo Odubeko has been named the Premier League 2 Player of the Month for April.
The 18-year-old forward had an outstanding month, scoring five goals in two vital victories alongside two other appearances to help West Ham secure safety in Premier League 2 Division 1.
Odubeko believes a new finishing technique has played a big part in his success.
"When I was younger I used to side-foot the ball a lot," he says. "I used to have ankle problems, and my ankle wouldn't let me lace the ball a lot.
"As I've got older, since I turned 17 or 18, I think my ankle's got stronger so I was like, 'I'm going to start doing what I couldn't do back then,' trying to lace it into the corners.
"Sometimes in a game you may only get one chance, and that's the only chance you get, so you've got to score it.
"That's what it's like as a striker. You've got to be patient. You've got to have a cool head, and luckily most times I do."
Odubeko's first goals in April came when he struck a superb hat-trick as West Ham came from 2-0 down to triumph 3-2 at Manchester United, hitting the winner in stoppage time.
He then hit both of his side's goals as they again came from behind to beat Everton 2-1.
Those contributions proved crucial as the Hammers ultimately avoided relegation by just two points.
The teenager topped a six-man shortlist that also featured Danny Cashman (Brighton & Hove Albion), Josh Hawkes (Sunderland), Dilan Markanday (Spurs), Cole Palmer (Manchester City) and Crysencio Summerville (Leeds).
He was chosen as the winner by the Premier League Football Development Panel.
