Hard to disagree with Kenny here.
Who else could challenge him?
Kenny Shiels says Paul Heffernan in the only candidate for the February's Player of the Month award 7 Mar 2013 17:21
THE 'brilliant' Irishman scored six in six games during the month and his manager believes he should lift the prize when the winner is revealed on Sunday.
KILMARNOCK boss Kenny Shiels claims striker Paul Heffernan should be handed the Clydesdale Bank Premier League player of the month prize for February - and insists no other player should come close.
The Rugby Park manager has been delighted with the form of the 31-year-old Irish frontman over recent weeks.
Heffernan - who missed the first 10 weeks of the season after breaking his collarbone - grabbed six goals in as many games during February, including four SPL strikes.
And Shiels claims that fact should weigh heavily in his favour when the monthly award winner is revealed on Sunday.
"Paul should get player of the month," said Shiels at today's pre-match media conference. "I can't see anyone who has played as well as Paul Heffernan. There's nobody close.
"I'm expecting him to get it. If he doesn't, I'll be disappointed.
"He's been brilliant for us and the way he has come back from injury has been impressive. We are delighted with him."
Killie take on St Johnstone on Saturday at McDiarmid Park but will travel to Perth minus five first-team players, leaving Shiels with a major selection headache.
He said: "The team news is not great because Garry Hay is injured, Rory McKeown is out, so that is the left side gone.
"I think Sammy Clingan will be okay, but Rory McKenzie is still injured, so is Borja Perez and Manuel Pascali obviously.
"So we are still scrapping about in those areas. It's not great, but there you go."
