Gent striker Gift Orban has won the Player of the Month and Goal of the Month for February and also Player of the Month for March following a remarkable performance for his team.

The Nigerian striker who joined Belgian Pro League side Gent from Norwegian club Stabaek in January on a permanent deal during the January transfer has established himself as a fiery attacker for the team.

Orban who has scored 11 goals in 14 appearances for the Buffalos this season is also the second-highest scorer in the Europa League. He received the Player of the Month title for both February and March and also Goal of the Month for February as a result of his performance.

Orban doing exploit in Belgium

The 20-year-old attacker has been remarkable in Belgium with his prolific goal-scoring. Four months into his new career at Gent, the Nigerian striker scored a double hat trick in the month of March and has started the month of April on a high-flying note scoring two.

During the domestic league in March, the Nigerian scored five goals, including one against RSC Anderlecht and four in Gent's 6-2 thrashing of Zulte Waregem.

After his outstanding performance in the months of February and March, Orban received the POTM and GOTM, which he proudly displayed as he took pictures at the club.

Gent will be in action at home on Thursday against Premier League side West Ham. A win for them will put them at an advantage going into the second leg. Gent will also be relying on Orban to continue his goal-scoring form as they aim for the trophy.
