Hasselbaink and McLaughlin are nominated for player and manager of the month respectively.Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (Burton Albion)
If proof were needed of the absolute belief Hasselbaink has instilled in his Burton players, it came in the 2-1 comeback win with 10 men against Southend United which sent them clear at the top. That win was part of a 13-point haul from five games.
Jon McLaughlin (Burton Albion) - goalkeeper
Displayed impeccable handling throughout the month. Conceded just three goals, contributing mightily to Albion’s promotion push when he achieved the rare feat of saving a penalty in successive games, against Southend United and Tranmere Rovers.
