Striker among four players selected for short-list
A superb start for Matt Tubbs at AFC Wimbledon has earned the striker a nomination for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month award.
The on-loan Bournemouth man (pictured) struck five goals in six games in all competitions during August to earn selection from the judging panel.
Four players have been short-listed for the award and they are as follows:
Trevor Carson (Cheltenham Town)
Three clean sheets in five games merely hinted at goalkeeper Carson’s month. A superb last-minute stop at his old club Bury preserved a 1-0 win. He made more fine saves against Carlisle United and even came up with an assist in the winning goal over Accrington Stanley.
Kevin Ellison (Morecambe)
The 35-year-old has started the season brilliantly. Eliison struck a low driven free-kick in the 3-0 win at Dagenham & Redbridge, before an even better goal against Newport County. Two headers were also among his goals during August and his inventiveness provided an assist against Cambridge United.
Peter Murphy (Wycombe Wanderers)
As new signings go, midfielder Murphy has had a marvellous impact since his arrival from Accrington Stanley. His driving runs into the area have always been a key feature of his play and he scored three goals in five games to lift Wycombe up among the front runners.
Matt Tubbs (AFC Wimbledon)
goals in five league games, bearing his trademark combination of positioning and pace, have been pivotal to Wimbledon’s comfortable start. His finishing ability is setting him apart in League 2. Four sharply-taken
All winners will be announced on Friday, 5 September.
