The January nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month Award are:

Cian Bolger (Fleetwood Town) – central defender
Provides a reassuring presence as the middle of three centre-halves in a defence which conceded just two goals in five games. Powerful in the air, as he proved with a last-minute headed winner at Coventry, one of his two goals in January.

Mark Marshall (Bradford City) – winger
Switching between the wing and a central role behind the main striker, Marshall used his pace to match-changing effect throughout the month with two assists and two goals, including a wonderful solo effort against Chesterfield.

Josh Morris (Scunthorpe United) – winger
Back to his brilliant early season form, Morris earned his third nomination this campaign by scoring in all four of Scunthorpe`s games. Followed up superb free-kicks against Peterborough and Bury with a brilliant winner on the run at Northampton.

James Vaughan (Bury) – striker
A month to savour for the 28-year-old Vaughan with seven goals in five games. Dominant in the air and dynamic on the ground, he proved his finishing class with four goals in a 20-minute spell in the 5-1 triumph over Peterborough.

Winners will be announced on Friday 10th February 2017.
