The midfielder set the month on fire with a strike after 16 seconds in a 4-0 demolition of West Bromwich Albion and followed up that finish with braces away at Reading and at home to Millwall.

Rotherham midfielder Semi Ajayi is also nominated after scoring five times while Norwich City’s Emiliano Buendia and Sheffield United defender Jack O’Connell complete the list.

The winner will be announced by the EFL tomorrow morning.
