JON MCLAUGHLIN NOMINATED FOR PLAYER OF THE MONTH

6 January 2016

BURTON Albion goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin has been nominated for Sky Bet League One player of the month (December).

Tom Aldred (Blackpool) – central defender
His no-nonsense, heart-on-sleeve style of defending earns him hero status at Bloomfield Road. Did everything in the 1-0 win at Wigan Athletic, which included heading the only goal and was superb again to keep out free-scoring Peterborough United.

Adam Chambers (Walsall) – midfielder
An immense presence as Walsall adjusted to life without former manager Dean Smith. He was the glue that held his side together, protecting a back four that conceded just one goal all month and driving forward to start attacks.

Jon McLaughlin (Burton Albion) – goalkeeper
Three clean sheets in five games only tell half the story of his epic month. Commanding in his area, he saved a penalty against Doncaster Rovers and then ensured a 1-0 win over Swindon Town with two acrobatic wonder saves which defied belief.

Andy Williams (Doncaster Rovers) – striker
A second successive nomination for the 29-year-old. As well as his all-round play in the penalty area, his wonderfully inventive drag back and Bergkampesque finish against Oldham Athletic was the pick of his four goals in as many games.

ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY JANUARY 8 2016

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Head of Communications John Nagle; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
