Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month nominations - January

2 February 2016

The nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month award for January.

Chris Clements (Mansfield Town) – midfielder

A technical ball player with a fine range of passing from deep, the 25-year-old added goals to his playmaking skills in January. His three goals included beautifully flighted unstoppable free-kicks against Accrington Stanley and Stevenage.

Ricky Holmes (Northampton Town) - winger

His recent return from injury has been a welcome boost at Sixfields. Skilful, quick and always prepared to run at defenders, he provided two assists in the month as well as two goals, including a stunning volleyed winner at Dagenham & Redbridge.

Shaun Miller (Morecambe) – striker

The mobile forward scored in four of his five games in January, including a clever finish for the winner against Yeovil Town and a long-range effort against Newport County. His hold-up play and willingness to drag defenders out wide also impressed.

Jake Wright (Oxford United) – defender

Outstanding as Oxford kept pace at the top of Sky Bet League 2. Allied his captaincy role to an ability to read the game and bring the ball out of defence. Played a vital part in the 1-0 win at promotion rivals Portsmouth.
