Middlesbrough's Marvin Emnes has won the npower Championship player of the month award for August.

The striker fired seven goals in the first four weeks of the new season, four of which came in the league.

Emnes is the first Boro player to win a monthly award since Juninho in March 1997, and Tony Mowbray was delighted for him.

"Marvin just needed letting out of the cage," the Middlesbrough boss told the club's official website.

"His talent is obvious to see, the work ethic is there, he plays wherever you want him to and does whatever you ask of him.

"He's a joy to work with."
