Name: Connor Wickham
Despite featuring in just two of Crystal Palace’s four Premier League fixtures throughout February; striker Connor Wickham demonstrated his top-flight ability during the end of last month to nail down a place in manager Alan Pardew’s starting eleven and rediscover his shooting boots.
The 22-year-old, who is a former England Under-21 international, has remarkably multiplied his goalscoring tally in the league by five times in his last two appearances, with a brace against West Brom kick-starting his rich vein of form.
Firstly Wickham provided the assist for fellow frontman Emmanuel Adebayor to net the Eagles’ eventual consolation goal in their 2-1 home defeat to Watford, with his second-half substitute appearance enough to earn the striker a recall to the starting eleven in their next fixture against the Baggies.
There; at the Hawthorns, is where the former Ipswich Town and Sunderland hitman scored twice after the interval to try and spark his teammates into a remarkable comeback after West Brom raced into a three-goal lead after just 31 minutes.
It seems Wickham may have well recaptured his eye for goal thanks to his late-February form, with the young forward recording another two-goal performance in Tuesday night’s 2-2 stalemate at Sunderland.
