Vydra Is 'Goal-den' Boy

Matej Vydra has won the Budweiser Premier League Goal of the Month award.

Vydra’s stunning finish at Southampton earned the Clarets’ striker the prize for February.

And his winning effort – which gave the Clarets a 2-1 victory at St Mary’s Stadium during their current seven-match unbeaten run – made it a landmark Turf Moor double after Sean Dyche was earlier named as the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month.

Vydra, whose first goal for 17 months saw him collect a long pass from Jeff Hendrick on his chest before giving the Saints’ defence the slip and volleying left-footed into the top corner, beat seven other short-listed players to the top-flight award.
