When it comes to awards, things aren’t usually all that different. The accolades tend to always head to the attackers.
The boys at the back must often feel like an afterthought. Well not anymore!
Marvin Ekpiteta has been simple sensational for Leyton Orient, and even with his team firing in the goals the centre-back has stood out.
Orient won five from seven in September, scoring 17 times. They only conceded four and the 23-year-old got himself on the scoresheet against Braintree Town.
This defender has his day, and Ekpiteta’s manager Justin Edinburgh says he is only going to get better.
