O'Shea Up for Player of the Month Award

7 December 2016

After netting six goals in total and four goals in Sky Bet League 1 last month, our very own Jay O'Shea has been nominated for the Sky Bet Player of the Month for November.

The Dubliner has stiff competition from three players at sides higher up the league - but we know where our vote would go!

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

Here is the full list of runners and riders for the November award:

Jay O’Shea (Chesterfield) - midfielder
Standing out in a side mired in the relegation places is not easy, but that is what O’Shea did in November. Naturally talented, he created chances for others and scored four goals, which included a superb free-kick against Bristol Rovers.

Mark Beevers (Bolton Wanderers) – central defender 
Experienced and technically sound under pressure, he provided the glue that held the Bolton defence together as they kept three clean sheets in four games. Outstanding in the 2-0 win over Millwall as he kept his former teammates quiet.

Steven Davies (Rochdale) – striker
With four goals in 198 minutes on the pitch, including braces against Swindon and Walsall, the 28-year-old is proving the perfect impact substitute with his reading of the game and his ability to move defenders around to create holes.

Ethan Ebanks-Landell (Sheffield United) – central defender
Made a telling impact at both ends of the pitch for the second successive month. A cult hero at Bramall Lane with his kick-it, head-it style at the back, his fourth goal of the season was a vital one – a 93rd-minute winner against Bury.
