Carlisle United forward Omari Patrick has been voted the PFA Vertu Motors League Two Fans' Player of the Month for March.

One of the biggest winners of Paul Simpson's return to Brunton Park, Patrick lit up League Two in March with three goals and a set of sparkling performances to drag the Cumbrians clear of the relegation zone.

Having ended February with the only goal in Simpson's first game back in charge, Patrick hit openers in consecutive games to start March – both Carlisle wins – as the Blues went on a run of six wins in a marathon seven matches.

Although he only added one more goal before the end of the month (in a defeat to promotion-chasing Newport County), the lightning-fast striker, the godson of Olympic 100m gold medalist Linford Christie, was a driving force in Carlisle's revival under Simpson and terrorised defences all of March.

Patrick took a healthy 31% of the fan vote, coming in ahead of Salford City's Brandon Thomas-Asante (23%) who scored four times throughout the month - including a hat-trick against Scunthorpe.

Leyton Orient's Ruel Sotiriou came in third with 16%, with Exeter City's Jevani Brown, Mitchell Pinnock of Northampton town and Port Vale's Ben Garrity the other players shortlisted.
