Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month: Marc McNulty

Coventry City striker Marc McNulty has been named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for January.

McNulty maintained his rich scoring streak with another four goals in January, this time in four games as Coventry continued to climb the table.

The pick of his goals was a stroked winner against Chesterfield, while he also got an assist against Cambridge.

Coventry manager Mark Robins said: “It's great to see Marc being recognised for the hard work that he puts in week in week out and he is a deserved winner.

“His performances have been outstanding and his goals have been vital for us, so congratulations to him and let’s see if he can push on again and win the award in February as well."

McNulty said: “It’s the first time I’ve picked up one of these awards so it’s very pleasing to receive it.

“I went on a little run in December, and as a striker you take a lot of confidence from scoring goals and it’s just gone from one week to another.

“I think the boys have just been a little bit inconsistent this season, we know that ourselves but there’s still a lot to play for, there’s still a lot of games and we’re positive that come the end of the season we’ll do well.”

Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “After a slow start to his Coventry career, Marc is finally showing the fans what he’s all about with a run of goals stretching back well into December.

“It’s fair to say that he’s a player who thrives on confidence and the streak shows no signs of abating as the Sky Blues look to consolidate their Play-Off position.”

Sky Bet EFL trader Mikey Mumford said: “Marc McNulty’s goals have been vital in a Coventry side which have sometimes struggled to find the net this season.

“The lowest scorers of the current top seven, McNulty’s fine form extends beyond January with 10 strikes in 11 games, including four in January, tightening the Sky Blues’ grip on the congested Play-Off positions.

“He’s hot on the heels of the leading scorers in the division with 13 to his name.”

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 Mikey Mumford.
