February PotM Nomination - Devitt (Carlisle)

February PotM Nomination - Devitt (Carlisle)

The February nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month Award are:

Jamie Devitt (Carlisle United) - midfielder
Carlisle`s set piece creator made a telling contribution with four goals and two assists in six games. Playing more centrally this season, his pinpoint free-kick against Colchester and fine strike at Notts County highlighted his ball-striking ability.

Jimmy Dunne (Accrington Stanley) - central defender
In his first taste of EFL football, the 20-year-old Irishman was asked to mark some of League Two`s strongest strikers in John Akinde, Marc McNulty and Uche Ikpeazu. Only four goals conceded and three clean sheets in six games say he coped well.

Mohamed Eisa (Cheltenham Town) - striker
The 23-year-old has turned on the style since Christmas with eight goals in his last 11 games. Four came in February, including a hat-trick against Port Vale as he showed off his close control, quick feet, dribbling ability and clinical finishing.

Marc Richards (Swindon Town) - striker
Have goals, will travel. Swindon is the 35-year-old forward`s 11th club of his career, yet the results are the same. Equally adept with head and feet, his five goals in six games owed everything to his predatory instincts and calmness.

Winners will be announced on Friday 9th March 2018.
