The nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month award for August have been announced.
They are as follows:-
Trevor Carson (Cheltenham Town)
Three clean sheets in five games merely hint at Carson's month. A superb last-minute stop at his old club Bury preserved a 1-0 win. He made more fine saves against Carlisle United and even came up with an assist in the winning goal over Accrington Stanley. (Image of Carson courtesy of Thousand Word media)
Kevin Ellison (Morecambe)
The 35-year-old has begun the season brilliantly. Served up a low, driven free-kick in the 3-0 win at Dagenham & Redbridge, before an even better one against Newport County. Also scored two headers, while his inventiveness provided an assist against Cambridge United.
Peter Murphy (Wycombe Wanderers)
As new signings go, Murphy has had a marvellous impact since his arrival from Accrington Stanley. Already a crowd favourite for his driving runs into the area, he scored three in five to lift Wycombe among the front runners.
Matt Tubbs (AFC Wimbledon)
His finishing ability is setting him apart in Sky Bet League 2. Four sharply-taken goals in five games, bearing his trademark combination of positioning and pace, have been pivotal to Wimbledon's comfortable start.
The winners will be announced on Friday.
