Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month nominations

5 November 2014

The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month award for October.

Gwion Edwards (Crawley Town)

Edwards netted four goals from four games in a month when he received his first Wales call-up. Fine strikes against Notts County and Coventry City and fluid link-up play complimented to his outstanding versatility across a number of midfield positions.

Jonathan Forte (Oldham Athletic)

Forte is relishing his new lease of life at Oldham. Playing wide or through the middle, he demonstrated his finishing ability in one-on-ones to score twice against Coventry City - the highlight of a prolific month of five goals in five games.

Dean Lewington (Milton Keynes Dons)

Lewington was the only ever-present in a back four that conceded just one goal in October. His powers of organisation and captaincy were key to three clean sheets. He is superb positionally and is always prepared to put his body on the line.

Marcus Maddison (Peterborough United)

The 21-year-old’s Football League career could not have started better after a switch from Gateshead. He moved more centrally to scored four goals with sumptuous 30-yard free-kicks against Oldham Athletic and Barnsley, and an impudent finish at Crawley Town.

The winners will be announced on Friday.
