The 2017/18 season is under way, and these four players lit up Sky Bet League One in August. Here are the Player of the Month nominees...
Patrick Bauer (Charlton Athletic) – defender
The German impressed at both ends of the pitch in August; a commanding presence in a defence which conceded just three goals in four games, he used his aerial prowess to score headed opening goals against Bristol Rovers and Rotherham.
Alex Cairns (Fleetwood Town) – goalkeeper
Three clean sheets in his first three games of the season for the Fleetwood keeper, who made two notable stops in the win against Rotherham. However, it was his astonishing triple save in the 1-0 win at Northampton which really stood out.
Jack Marriott (Peterborough United) – striker
What a way to announce your arrival at a new club. Six goals in his first four games for Posh included a hat-trick at Bristol Rovers and an impudent lob against Rotherham, summing up both his trickery and his calm finishing.
Kieffer Moore (Rotherham United) – striker
Despite picking up just three points from their four August fixtures, Rotherham's on-loan striker caught the eye with four goals from three starts – the highlight being a first-half treble against Southend United.
The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trader Mikey Mumford.
The winners will be announced on Friday 8th September.
