The nominations for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award for January 2017.Cian Bolger (Fleetwood Town)
Provides a reassuring presence as the middle of three centre-halves in a defence which conceded just two goals in five games. Powerful in the air, as he proved with a last-minute headed winner at Coventry, which was one of his two goals in January.
Mark Marshall (Bradford City)
Switching between the wing and a central role behind the main striker, Marshall used his pace to match-changing effect throughout the month with two assists and two goals, including a wonderful solo effort against Chesterfield.
Josh Morris (Scunthorpe United)
Back to his brilliant early season form, Morris earned his third nomination this campaign by scoring in all four of Scunthorpe’s games. Followed up superb free-kicks against Peterborough and Bury with a brilliant winner on the run at Northampton.
James Vaughan (Bury)
A month to savour for 28-year-old Vaughan with seven goals in five games. Dominant in the air and dynamic on the ground, he proved his finishing class with four goals in a 20-minute spell in the 5-1 triumph over Peterborough.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
