Wes Nominated for League 1 Player of the Month

Thomas shortlisted for national award

6 December 2017

Oxford United striker Wes Thomas had been nominated for Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month.

Wes was in great form in November with three goals to cap some impressive performances, leading to him being added to the following shortlist:

Matt Gilks (Scunthorpe United) – goalkeeper

The vocal leader and last line of a Scunthorpe defence which conceded just a single goal in four games. Commanding in his area, it was his shot-stopping ability which preserved wins over promotion rivals Bradford and Charlton.

Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn Rovers) – central defender

Led by example as Rovers rampaged through November. Not content to play a pivotal role at the back, he shouldered the responsibility to convert two penalties among his four goals, which also included a delightful free-kick at Blackpool.

Max Power (Wigan Athletic) – midfielder

Thrust further upfield to fill the hole left by Nick Powell’s injury, Power responded with energy and intelligence, linking up with Will Grigg and providing two assists from corners which helped Wigan move top of Sky Bet League One.

Wes Thomas (Oxford United) - striker

Injury cost him most of last season, but it has given him the spur to make up for lost time this campaign. Always willing to run the channels tirelessly for his team, he found the net three times in four November games.


The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL Trader Mikey Mumford.
