Bury midfielder Jay O’Shea has been named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for November.
It was a month to savour for O’Shea with four goals and two assists as Bury scored for fun in November.
O’Shea used the spaces created by the likes of Danny Mayor to shoot at will. With two free-kicks, three of his goals came from outside the area.
O’Shea said: “I think I won the award two years ago, at Chesterfield, but it’s definitely the best run I’ve been on at Bury.
“I think confidence and the way the team is playing is what has allowed me to get so many opportunities in front of goal and the way the team’s been performing has allowed me to chip in with a few myself.”
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “O’Shea, along with Bury, took a while to get going this season, but his return to goalscoring form has coincided with his team’s spurt up the table.
“Four goals in November have kickstarted his season and there is no reason why he can’t push on and hit double figures for the first time in his professional career.”
Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “Jay O’Shea has been in outstanding form for Bury with four goals and two assists. Three of his goals were from outside the penalty area and two were free-kicks.
“With him in this kind of form Bury will be looking to mount a serious title challenge and we will be keeping them at 11/2.”
The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan, League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
