Carl Baker named Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month

5 December 2014

Milton Keynes Dons' Carl Baker has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month for November.

Still getting back to full fitness, Baker has provided an irresistible spark by running at defenders and mesmerizing them at will.

He ran the game and struck a fine low winner against Port Vale, while he had two assists in the 6-0 win over Colchester United.

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson said: “I’m ecstatic for Bakes. He’s come in, worked tirelessly and made a major contribution in each of the games during the month, so this award is fully deserved.

“It’s not just been Bakes who has played well though. The whole squad deserve credit and they would have had a good chance of winning Team of the Month if there was such an award!”

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “After forcing his way into the starting line-up, Baker repaid his manager’s faith with a match-winning strike.

“Guaranteed a starting place at Coventry, Baker’s move has given him a new challenge – one that he is relishing."

The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Head of Communications John Nagle; League Managers Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
