Last updated : 14 September 2012 By Steve Forbes

Hibs striker Leigh Griffiths has been awarded SPL Player of the Month for August.

The former Livingston and Dundee youngster is currently on his second loan spell at Easter Road from Premiership side Wolves.

Grffiths, 21 has scored 3 goals already, a double against St Mirren and the equaliser in the Edinburgh derby draw with Hearts.

Hibs boss Pat Fenlon was delighted with his striker, he said:

"Since I've been here, Leigh's performances have been very, very good.

"I don't think his work-rate is ever in question," said the manager.

"We're trying to get his head down a little bit more and concentrating on his football.

"Last week was a big plus for him, because he got called back into the under-21 squad and he got the player of the month."

Well done Leigh.
