mixed month featuring two victories, two defeats and one
draw in the league
and a further draw and defeat as the FA Cup dream died at
the fifth round stage yet again.
of those victories were based around solid defence with the
months clean sheets coming against both Doncaster and Leeds
with the back five doing a particularly impressive job
against Ross McCormack.
there any point in listing any of the contenders other than
that man from Argentina? Every goal this month came from
Leonardo Ulloa, making this surely the most predictable poll
you are likely to see outside of a Zimbabwean general
Player of the Month - Leonardo Ulloa (68.48% of the
from Argentina came back fit and firing on all
cylinders, scoring every single one of Brighton and
Hove Albion's five goals in the month in February.
They included winners against Doncaster Rovers and
Leeds United, giving the Seagulls the lead against
Hull and ultimately just consolation goals against
the same opponents and Wigan Athletic at the end of
the month. So where would we be without him? Not

victory wasn't by a bigger margin.

Responsible for gifting Wigan Athletic the opener at
The Amex in the last game of the month with his
first mistake in over a year as an Albion player, he

in the home victories with Doncaster and Leeds and
the defeat against Wigan Athletic.

the months two victories. Rested for both of the FA
Cup games with Hull City and who knows what might

Now fully recovered from injury, what can you
say about the mans form in February? Well, that we
are basically a one man team with him netting all
five goals scored in the month. Sensational
Made his first mistake in over a year of playing
for the Albion when giving away the first goal in
the defeat against Wigan. Other than that another
model of consistency with clean sheets proving to be
the basis for victories.
||Stephen Ward -
Another impressive month for the left back playing a
key role in those two clean sheets. He missed the
home game with Hull but proved to be a great
attacking threat in the much improved second half
performance in the replay.
