Mellor named Player of the Month
Wednesday striker Neil Mellor has won the npower League One Player of the Month award for his top-drawer performances throughout April.
Mellor, on a season-long loan from Preston North End, netted an impressive return of six goals from seven matches in the month to guide the Owls to a mid-table position.
The award makes it a double trophy haul for the striker this week, with the former Liverpool hitman also taking the club's Player of the Season award.
Mellor plays his final game for the Owls when Exeter City make the trip to Hillsborough for the final day of the regular League One campaign before returning to Deepdale.
But his end-of-season goal rally, and awards double, could see a 'tug of war' for his services over the summer, with Wednesday thought to be interested keeping him permanently, Preston boss Phil Brown seemingly interested in talking to him, and Brighton & Hove Albion also linked with the striker in the press.
His form in April has certainly caught the eye, netting a brace of goals in each of the Owls' wins over Colchester United and Swindon Town respectively, whilst also netting in the 1-1 draw at Walsall and 4-0 victory over Tranmere.
'Every team needs a goalscorer and Neil has proved he is capable of that by scoring 20 goals this season,' Owls boss Gary Megson told the official SWFC website.
'He had a really good month in April, scoring six goals and has shown his best form for Wednesday since I joined the club in February.
'Neil has set that standard, now it is up to him to maintain it.'
