Murphy scoops monthly player gong
Charlton midfielder Danny Murphy
Charlton midfielder Danny Murphy has won September's Barclays Player Of The Month award.

The Londoners are flying high in the Premiership in second place and Murphy's contribution has been crucial.

He scored both goals in the 2-1 victory over West Brom and his performances against Birmingham and Chelsea led to many tipping him for England selection.

However, the 28-year-old failed to earn a place in Sven-Goran Eriksson's plans for the recent World Cup qualifiers.

Eriksson went to watch Charlton in their 3-2 home defeat to Tottenham on the first day of October but decided against calling up the former Liverpool man.

"I'm a bit disappointed," said Charlton boss Alan Curbishley. "He's playing excellently this season and had another good game against Spurs."

"Sven-Goran Eriksson was there and perhaps he's in his thoughts, but not just yet.

Murphy is the second Addicks player to receive the prize this term following Darren Bent's August award.
