23 Shares

Daryl Dike’s stellar run on loan at EFL Championship side Barnsley continued on Tuesday with the Orlando City loanee picking up a pair of club awards.

Barnsley announced this week that Dike was named the March Player of the Month, as voted by the fans. In addition, his goal vs. Birmingham City was named Goal of the Month, continuing a super run of form for the young striker.

“I’m honored to be voted Player of the Month for March,” Dike said in a statement. “Honestly, it’s just a result of having great service and guys around me. Wishing to continue the form with the team as we move into April and hope to see you all soon in a filled Oakwell.”

Dike, 20, has scored five league goals in 11 appearances this season for the current fifth place club. The U.S. Men’s National Team striker is coming off a pair of positive appearances internationally for Gregg Berhalter’s side in friendly wins over Jamaica and Northern Ireland and will now return to league play this weekend.

After excelling on loan in the EFL Championship, Dike is continuing to attract interest abroad, with several top English sides linked with his services.

Barnsley has won nine of its past 11 league matches, giving it major confidence heading into the final stretch of the league season. Up next for the club is a date with Reading on April 2.

  1. yeah i m tired of ppl purely looking at stats. Dike is a winner. Just think about the impacts he made to Orlando City and now Barnsley. Huge turnaround for both teams and they started WINNING whenever he plays. Yes you are suppose to score as forward but his body of work probably creates alot more changes for his teammate and definitely gives hell to opponents body.

    Just like Tyler Adams, he’s a winner. Play Dike.

    • Health permitting he will get his shot this summer. There are lots of games to play coming up and Sargent can’t be our only option. Dike looks like a really promising player.

  2. I love him. He’s an affable, humble, and intelligent lad with incredible physical attributes and deceptive skill. I hope to see him thriving in the Premier League sooner than later.

    • I can see him playing for a club like Everton or West Ham, by the way. Maybe a Burnley, but I wouldn’t be excited about it. I’d be thrilled with Villa, as a supporter, but somehow I don’t see it.
