Jeff Hendrick has been voted as Derby County`s player of the month for September by Vital Derby readers after a fine run of form in the month which included him scoring the winning goal in the memorable victory over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground with The Rams playing virtually the entire match with only ten men. He followed that up with a goal in the home victory against Millwall to help his side into third place in the Championship table and maintain their superb start to the season. The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international played every minute of The Rams` four games during the month after establishing himself in the starting line-up at the start of the season.

Captain Jason Shackell came in second place in the voting shortly followed by Frank Fielding in third place, the full voting is as follows:
