DOYLE & WELLENS NOMINATED FOR NOVEMBER AWARDS

10 December 2019

Eoin Doyle has been nominated for his second League Two Player of the Month in a row alongside Richie Wellens, who has been nominated for Manager of the Month.

Doyle won the October Player of the Month as he started out on his goalscoring glut but has continued his form into November and finds himself up for a gong once again.

Last month, the EFL’s top scorer was on target in all three league games, netting four including an impressive brace against Salford.

Richie Wellens has been nominated for the manager award after an unbeaten November – in the league – with wins over Walsall, Salford and Mansfield.

Each win came by the solitary goal but the style of football in each game was deserving of some slightly heavier scorelines.

Wellens comes up against the following candidates in  his nomination:

Keith Curle (Northampton Town)

A stunning 4-1 victory over high-flying Crewe was the centrepiece of a recent surge in form which has carried Curle’s men into the promotion play-off places. That win was part of a seven-point haul from three unbeaten games.

Paul Hurst (Scunthorpe United)

A slow start to his Scunthorpe tenure didn’t worry Hurst, who trusted in his principles and work ethic to turn around his side’s form. Seven points from three unbeaten games was his reward and lifted United away from the relegation zone.

Ryan Lowe (Plymouth Argyle)

Limited to two games by inclement weather, Lowe guided his side to victories over promotion rivals Forest Green and Bradford as Argyle began to settle into the style that had them marked out as pre-season favourites to go up.

Eoin Doyle is up against the following players:

Ebou Adams (Forest Green Rovers) - midfielder

The unsung ball-winner in the Forest Green midfield, constantly breaking up play and setting his side going forward, Adams also contributed with an astute assist at Cheltenham and raced into the box to score twice at Leyton Orient.

Antoni Sarcevic (Plymouth Argyle) - midfielder

The heartbeat of an improving Argyle side, driving teammates forward and causing problems from set pieces. Scored the only goal with a run and rising shot at Forest Green, then cleverly set up the first goal in the win over Bradford.

Scott Wharton (Northampton Town) – central defender

As well as offering solidity at the back with his bravery and blocking ability, Wharton contributed three goals, all from set pieces. A classic header and a poacher’s finish were bettered by a lovely controlled volley against Crewe.
