SKY BET: October Player of the Month nominations

4 November 2014

Midfielder Brad Potts nominated for Sky Bet Player of Month award

The October nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month award are:

Kwesi Appiah (Cambridge United) - striker
Three goals and two assists in the month means he is enjoying his loan from Crystal Palace. A cool finish against Cheltenham Town was bettered by a brilliant individual run and rising shot in the 5-1 win over Oxford United. 

Mark Cullen (Luton Town) – striker
The 22-year-old made the most of his starts in October with five goals in as many games, including the perfect hat-trick in a 3-1 win over Dagenham & Redbridge – a header followed by right-foot, then left-foot shots.

Carl McHugh (Plymouth Argyle) – central defender
The former Gaelic football player has made another impressive switch recently – from left-back to a role as the central man in a back three which didn’t concede a goal in October, partly due to his header off the line against Carlisle United.

Brad Potts (Carlisle United) – midfielder
Carlisle’s upsurge in form can be partly attributed to the form of 20-year-old Potts, whose elegant play from midfield helped the Cumbrian side score a division-equalling 11 goals in five games. He managed to bag two of them and played a part in the build up play for a number of other strikes.


The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Head of Communications John Nagle; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.

Sky Bet is the title sponsor of The Football League. This season, a £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund will go to a Football League club to spend on players in the January 2015 transfer window. 

Fans who bet with Sky Bet generate Transfer Fund Tokens and go into a random draw to win a £5,000 prize – and the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund for their Football League club.
