Cardiff City midfielder Joe Ledley has won the January Powerade Player of the Month Award in the Coca-Cola Championship.

Ledley's performances were at the heart of a fantastic month for Cardiff City, which saw the team record two wins and a draw from three league fixtures. The Welsh international began January by getting on the scoresheet in his side's creditable away draw at title chasers Birmingham City. He followed this with impressive displays in the Bluebirds back-to-back wins over Coventry City and Nottingham Forest to help his side cement their Play-Off place in the Coca-Cola Championship.

Also short-listed for the January award were DJ Campbell of Blackpool (on loan from Leicester City), Brian Stock of Doncaster Rovers and Swansea City's Jason Scotland.

Chris Kamara, chairman of the Powerade Player of the Month Awards panel, said: "Joe Ledley played out of his skin in January and it is little wonder that he was attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs during the transfer window. It is great news for Dave Jones' side that they were able to resist all offers for Joe as he is going to be instrumental in Cardiff's attempts to win promotion this season."

Matt Oakley of Leicester City won the award in League 1 and Dany N'Guessan of Lincoln City landed the League 2 accolade.

The Powerade Awards panel, chaired by Sky Sports pundit and Coca-Cola Ambassador Chris Kamara, made the decision. The panel also includes Steve Bates, Chairman of the Football Writers' Association, Malcolm Clarke, Chairman of the Football Supporters' Federation and Steve Watts, Marketing Assets Manager, Coca-Cola Great Britain.
