The September nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month Award are:

Sonny Bradley (Plymouth Argyle) – central defender
The heartbeat of a defence which conceded just two goals in five September games. Powerful in the air, strong in the tackle, he has a no-nonsense style at the back and even found time to head home a late winner against Cheltenham Town.

Gary Roberts (Portsmouth) – midfielder
Three goals and two assists for the creative hub of a Portsmouth side which moved into the automatic Play-Off places. Dictates play, has the vision and technique to find teammates, while his goal against Barnet shows he can finish with style.

Jon Stead (Notts County) – striker
The 33-year-old shows no sign of slowing down. Five goals in as many games took his season`s tally to nine. Always willing to drop deeper to link up play, a lovely strike against Leyton Orient showed he is comfortable shooting from distance.

Nathan Thomas (Hartlepool United) – winger
Five goals in five games from the left wing, including two lovely finishes at Yeovil Town, is impressive enough to add to his positive style. It becomes remarkable when you learn that he scored every one of Hartlepool`s goals in September.

Winners will be announced on Friday 7th October 2016.
