October PotM Nomination - Pope (Port Vale)
The October nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month Award are:
Luke Berry (Luton Town) - midfielder
His second month as a Luton player could not have gone much better with a series of all-action displays and the perfect hat-trick in the 7-1 thumping of Stevenage, the highlight of which was a delightful 20-yard curler.
Neal Eardley (Lincoln City) - full-back
Limited by injury to 25 EFL starts in four seasons and asked to play at both right-back and left-back in October, his Premier League experience, consistency and defensive know-how were invaluable as Lincoln conceded just two goals in five games.
Mikael Mandron (Colchester United) - striker
Leading the Colchester line did not come easily at first to the 23-year-old but October was the month in which he blossomed, scoring four goals in five games, holding the ball up intelligently and bringing teammates into play.
Tom Pope (Port Vale) - striker
Took it upon himself to transform Vale`s dismal start to the season, scoring six and making one of his side`s eight goals in five games. Two trademark headers were complemented by bulldozing runs and finishes as well as close range strikes.
Winners will be announced on Friday 10th October 2017.
