The nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month award for September.

Matt Crooks (Accrington Stanley)
Converted from a forward without a league goal to a deep-lying midfielder and a cult hero who scores, with two stroked long-range efforts against Crawley Town and Yeovil Town. His ability to nick the ball away in a tackle has been equally impressive.

Michael Gash (Barnet)
September was the month in which he rediscovered the goalscoring prowess of his non-league days. Four in five games were the result of good positioning allied to the physical presence he brings as leader of the attacking line.

Michael Harriman (Wycombe Wanderers)
Began September on the right wing and ended it at right-back - not that it stopped him driving forward and whipping in dangerous crosses. As well as solid defensive work, his three goals included a 25-yard winner against Cambridge United.

Krystian Pearce (Mansfield Town)
Since he was signed from non-league Torquay, the 25-year-old has quickly become the mainstay of a defence which conceded just two goals in five games. Immense against Plymouth Argyle and Stevenage, organising the back line and mopping up superbly.

The winners will be announced on Friday.


UPDATE - Michael Gash was named player of the month
