SAINTS star Adam Armstrong has been nominated for the PFA Championship player of the month award for November.

It is the first time a Saints player has been nominated for such an award so far this campaign, with Russell Martin's side now 11 without defeat in the competition. 

Armstrong leads the Championship nominations for November, with two goals and two assists in games against Millwall, West Brom, Huddersfield and Bristol City.

Armstrong’s brace also fired Southampton to a 2-0 victory over Cardiff, and to Saints’ longest unbeaten run for 19 seasons, during the first game of December. 

Armstrong curled and headed in his 11th and 12th goals of the season to stay on the heels of Blackburn’s Sammie Szmodics in the race for the Championship’s golden boot.

Saints stay fourth but the 11 matches they are now without defeat has equalled the number they went unbeaten between December 1994 and February 1995 – though that run remarkably contained nine draws, in contrast to the eight wins in the current sequence.

Leeds United forward and last month’s Championship player of the month Crysencio Summerville is nominated once more after adding two assists and a goal to his season’s tally.

His teammate Georginio Rutter is also up for this month’s award after contributing two goals and two assists to the Whites’ unbeaten November run.

Sammie Szmodics is on fine form for Blackburn Rovers, earning a nomination for six goals in November including two against Birmingham and Norwich City.

Hull City’s Jaden Philogene earns a nomination after his three goals and one assist helped pull the Tigers into the playoff spots. An audacious backheel against Rotherham among his coolest finishes of the season to date.

John Swift returned from injury in November to help West Brom to two back-to-back wins in the league, including contributing to a 2-0 victory against on-form Ipswich Town.
