The January nominations for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month Award are:
Tom Anderson (Doncaster Rovers) – central defender
The rock at the heart of a defence which conceded just two goals in six goals. Learning from his manager Darren Moore, he was a commanding presence at the back and found time to power home a header against Shrewsbury.
Chris Maguire (Sunderland AFC) - midfielder
The headline maker behind Sunderland’s resurgence with three goals and three assists in six games. Has embraced the attitude of change and the responsibility for dead balls by curling home an exquisite free-kick against Wycombe.
Steve Seddon (Portsmouth) – full-back
What an impact since his arrival. In three games, he has added solidity to the Pompey defence with just one goal conceded and rampaged forward to add an assist, as well as winning a free-kick and penalty which were both scored.
Ivan Toney (Peterborough United) - striker
Made light of the burden of captaincy and constant transfer speculation by firing Posh back into form with four goals in six games, including two against promotion rivals Wycombe. His dynamic work ethic has led by example.
