February PotM Nomination - Armstrong (Blackburn)

February PotM Nomination - Armstrong (Blackburn)

The February nominations for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month Award are:

Adam Armstrong (Blackburn Rovers) - striker
Brought pace and directness to the Rovers attack with four goals and an assist - all in the month in which he turned 21. A perfect foil for Danny Graham, he demonstrated the confidence of youth with two cool finishes at Portsmouth.

Jason Demetriou (Southend United) - full-back
Three goals from right-back as well as two clean sheets in four games. And what goals, too. A penalty winner at Peterborough, then a rasping drive on a forward foray and a lung-bursting late run and firm finish against Portsmouth.

Ruben Lameiras (Plymouth Argyle) - striker
His form this season has mirrored that of his team. Out of form and favour, the Portuguese playmaker came back into the side just before Christmas and has been brilliant since. He scored two goals and made two more in the month.

Joe Newell (Rotherham United) - winger
Can flit in and out of games, but his impact was huge in February with two goals and three assists. Always willing to use his trickery to skip past defenders and possesses the vision and technique to pick out teammates in space.

Winners will be announced on Friday 9th March 2018.

The Lads On Fire

Adam Armstrong took a little time to make his mark at Ewood Park, but when he did the on-loan Newcastle forward, who worked with Tony Mowbray at Coventry, hasn't looked back.
