The April nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month Award are:
Elliot Anderson (Bristol Rovers) - winger
Using his quick feet and focused mind, the teenage Newcastle loanee contributed three goals that were either equalisers or winners to Rovers’ promotion surge. He also added a pair of assists in the thrilling comeback victory at Rochdale.
Jon Guthrie (Northampton Town) – central defender
The unflustered quiet organiser of a Northampton defence which kept three clean sheets in six games, Guthrie joined fellow central defender Fraser Horsfall on eight league goals with close-range efforts at Oldham and Orient.
Jamie Proctor (Port Vale) - striker
With Vale missing key players through injury for the run-in, Proctor stepped up to fill the void. The 30-year-old oozed confidence in his finishing ability to score four goals in six games as Vale maintained their automatic promotion push.
Pierce Sweeney (Exeter City) – central defender
You won’t find Sweeney’s name in the list of scorers or goal makers, but the defender’s influence driving on an Exeter side to finally clinch promotion after five near misses was just as important as the four clean sheets he helped to preserve.
