Leeds United ace Jermaine Beckford has been voted the PFA Fans' Award winner for League One for March.
Beckford is a regular winner of the League One award and the striker romped to the March accolade with 41% of the fans votes.
He has now reached 31 goals for the season as Leeds have cemented their play-off position and manager Simon Grayson has warned off any suitors regarding his availability in the summer.
"He is under contract to us and I am pleased he is our player," said Grayson.
"To score 31 goals in a season is a real achievement at any level. When you have somebody who can finish chances like he does it is great.
"He is a fantastic talent. If he gets a consistent base to his game, he can go to the very top. He's scored five in four games now and look at his total for the season."
Peterborough's Craig Mackail-Smith was among the leading pack followed by Beckford's team-mate Fabian Delph and Leyton Orient's Stephen Purches.
