As well as netting 15 goals, he has also claimed 13 assists in all competitions making it an incredible season for the 29-year old.

Baker’s continued involvement in the club’s community schemes in his first season as Coventry City captain means he is one of the key figures in the City squad.

Baker gained 58% of the Player of the Season vote, voted for by the fans via and social media, and he was delighted to end the season with three awards.

The City captain said: “It is the best feeling in the world to be honest. To go home to your family with three awards is just incredible.

"It just makes me feel really appreciated here. I wanted to play in as many games as possible this season and be part of everything which happened this season.

"I would swap all the awards I have got for promotion if I'm honest but hopefully that will come next year. To have the captain's armband as well was probably the proudest moment of my career.

"I would like to thank all the fans who voted for me and no player has ever been more grateful to receive these awards."
