The August nominations for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month Award are:
Dimitri Cavare – Barnsley – Defender
A dynamic month at both ends of the pitch for Barnsley’s French right-back. Used his physical strength to help preserve four clean sheets, drove forward to serve up four assists and topped it off with a goal to savour against Scunthorpe.
Jason Cummings – Peterborough United – Forward
What an impact he has made at London Road. Six goals and three assists as he helped propel Posh to the top of League One. Commanding in the air, skilful on the floor, the on-loan Scot has formed an instant partnership with Matt Godden.
Ronan Curtis – Portsmouth – Midfielder
New to English football, the summer signing from Derry harried and hustled his way to three goals and an assist. Driving inside, he didn’t give Blackpool defenders a moment’s peace with both goals in the win at Bloomfield Road.
Lynden Gooch – Sunderland – Midfielder
Scoring the last-minute opening day winner against Charlton set the tone for both the Sunderland youth product and his team. Persistent and determined, the young American will chase everything and also has four assists to his name.
The winner will be announced on Friday 7 September
The judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ EFL League expert Don Goodman; EFL Marketing Director Drew Barrand, League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL Trader Mikey Mumford.
