The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month award for January.Dele Alli (Milton Keynes Dons)
Alli is now allying consistency with his energy and his staggering assurance for a teenager. He showed tremendous skill and composure for the opener against Barnsley and swept home an injury-time equaliser at Crawley Town.
Andy Butler (Doncaster Rovers)
A colossus at the back for his hometown club, Butler celebrated making his transfer from Sheffield United permanent by leading Rovers to an unbeaten month. He’s strong in the tackle and powerful in the air, as he proved when scoring at Chesterfield.
Tom Eastman (Colchester United)
Eastman was outstanding throughout the month against a succession of dangerous forwards. Reads the game well and possesses a comfortable range of passes, he has been pivotal to Colchester’s improved performances since the turn of the year.
Tom Hopper (Scunthorpe United)
January featured four goals in four games for the on-loan Leicester City forward. A powerful runner, he has impressed at the Iron with his assurance in front of goal and shot selection, especially as he only turned 21 in December.
The winners will be announced on Friday.
