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

Trevor Carson (Cheltenham Town) – goalkeeper
Three clean sheets in five games merely hint at Carson’s month. A superb last-minute stop at his old club Bury preserved a 1-0 win. He made more fine saves against Carlisle United and even came up with an assist in the winning goal over Accrington Stanley.

Kevin Ellison (Morecambe) – striker
The 35-year-old has begun the season brilliantly. Served up a low driven free-kick in the 3-0 win at Dagenham & Redbridge, before an even better one against Newport County. Also scored two headers, while his inventiveness provided an assist against Cambridge United.

Peter Murphy (Wycombe Wanderers) – midfielder
As new signings go, Murphy has had a marvellous impact since his arrival from Accrington Stanley. Already a crowd favourite for his driving runs into the area, he scored three in five to lift Wycombe among the front runners.

Matt Tubbs (AFC Wimbledon) – striker
His finishing ability is setting him apart in League 2. Four sharply-taken goals in five games, bearing his trademark combination of positioning and pace, have been pivotal to Wimbledon’s comfortable start.
