November PotM Nomination - Gilks (Scunthorpe)

November PotM Nomination - Gilks (Scunthorpe)

The November nominations for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month Award are:

Matt Gilks (Scunthorpe United) - goalkeeper
The vocal leader and last line of a Scunthorpe defence which conceded just a single goal in four games. Commanding in his area, it was his shot-stopping ability which preserved wins over promotion rivals Bradford and Charlton.

Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn Rovers) - central defender
Led by example as Rovers rampaged through November. Not content to play a pivotal role at the back, he shouldered the responsibility to convert two penalties among his four goals, which also included a delightful free-kick at Blackpool.

Max Power (Wigan Athletic) - midfielder
Thrust further upfield to fill the hole left by Nick Powell`s injury, Power responded with energy and intelligence, linking up with Will Grigg and providing two assists from corners which helped Wigan move top of Sky Bet League One.

Wes Thomas (Oxford United) - striker
Injury cost him most of last season, but it has given him the spur to make up for lost time this campaign. Always willing to run the channels tirelessly for his team, he found the net three times in four November games.

Winners will be announced on Friday 8th December 2017.
