Wayne showed few signs of being troubled by a head injury picked up in training during the month, and had no hesitation in picking the favourite among his September goals.
"I’d say my one against Crystal Palace," he said. "It was my first goal of the season, and it’s always important to get that first goal as it gives you the belief to kick on and score more."
The winners of this season's monthly awards will make a donation to a charity of their choice, as well as picking up our new trophy.
"I'm donating the money to the Young Enterprise charity in Trafford," added Wayne. "It’s a charity that teaches school children important skills for when they start their working life."
