Aston Villa striker Caleb Chukwuemeka has been named the Premier League 2 Player of the Month for September.
The 19-year-old earned the award thanks to five goals and one assist in three PL2 Division 2 matches for Aston Villa.
Chukwuemeka scored a hat-trick in a 4-2 victory over West Bromwich Albion. He followed that up a week later with two goals and one assists in an 8-0 win at Stoke City, with brother Carney netting twice and setting up two more in the same match.
