8 October 2014

The September nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month Award have been announced, with Spireites striker Eoin Doyle on the list.

Eoin Doyle (Chesterfield) – striker
Achieved the rare feat of scoring hat-tricks in successive games - against Scunthorpe United and Preston North End. Hugely popular with fans and team-mates for his appetite to chase lost causes. He is now adding goals with seven in four games.

Roy Carroll (Notts County) - goalkeeper
A great throwback month for the Northern Ireland keeper who conceded just two goals in five games. Organised the County defence well but really starred by pulling off fine saves away to high-flying Peterborough United and Chesterfield. 

Matt Done (Rochdale) – striker
Four goals and even more assists for the converted left-sided midfielder. No goals in 68 games prior to this season, he was inspirational with tackling, link-up play and spectacular finishes against Crawley Town and Leyton Orient.

Korey Smith (Bristol City) - midfielder
The midfield rock upon which City’s attacking play is built. Protects the back three by reading the play superbly and timing his interventions, he allows others to press forward freely. Provided an assist in the 2-0 win over Scunthorpe United.


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.

Sky Bet is the title sponsor of The Football League. This season, a £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund will go to a Football League club to spend on players in the January 2015 transfer window. 

Fans who bet with Sky Bet generate Transfer Fund Tokens and go into a random draw to win a £5,000 prize – and the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund for their Football League club.
