Dons striker earns deserved award nomination

Joe Pigott makes the shortlist for monthly award

7 October 2020

Joe Pigott’s impressive start to the season has been recognised with a nomination for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award.

Joe, who joined us in January 2018, made a valuable contribution to the team in September, scoring two goals and claiming four assists.

The winner of the League One award will be announced on Friday morning.

A shortlist of four players was put together with the following supporting notes:

Madger Gomes (Doncaster Rovers) - midfielder

The elegant Spaniard strode through opposing defences carrying the ball forward at will in September and scoring a goal in every game. His goals were easy on the eye, too – a left-footed curler, a long-range effort and a stinging strike.

George Honeyman (Hull City) - midfielder

The midfielder has won acclaim but only played in struggling sides so far in his career. Three assists and a goal in Hull’s 100% start suggest that his box-to-box, all-action style may finally be appreciated by a successful team.

Joe Pigott (AFC Wimbledon) - striker

As the fulcrum of the Wimbledon attack, Pigott’s impact in three games was astonishing, scoring two and setting up another four of the Dons’ seven goals. Added to a superb free-kick against Plymouth was his mobility and awareness of teammates.

Alex Palmer (Lincoln City) - goalkeeper

Made crucial saves at vital times in all three Lincoln victories in the month. His impressive month included a brilliant display against Oxford when he made an outstanding double save.
