Ingram, O’Nien & Washington nominated for FLW Fans’ League One Player of the Month award

Harry Kane

We are set up for a fantastic finish to the League One season, with things very tight at both ends of the table. 

March was about as action-packed a month as you could imagine in the English third tier but despite games coming thick and fast, there were still some high-quality performances.

Six players have been nominated for the FLW Fans’ League One player of the month award and we’ve broken down their credentials to help you decide who to vote for!

The Goalkeepers

Nominee: Matt Ingram

Hull kept their grip on the automatic promotion places in March, going unbeaten and claiming 14 points from a possible 18 in League One.

Their man between the sticks deserves a huge amount of credit for that as Matt Ingram helped them keep three clean sheets and concede just three times.

The Defenders

Nominees: Luke O’Nien, Will Nightingale

Lee Johnson’s Sunderland have built up a head of steam as they make a late promotion push, winning five of their six League One games and the EFL Trophy final this month.

Though he’s not a centre-back by trade, Luke O’Nien has been outstanding in the role throughout that period for the Black Cats – making 25 clearances as his side kept five clean sheets and only conceded just once in the league.

Will Nightingale has looked a man reborn under Mark Robinson and helped make Wimbledon a difficult side to beat.

The centre-back made 33 clearances and won 33 aerial duels in March – a month that has seen his side lose just once and pick up eight points that could be vital to their survival hopes.

The Midfielders

Nominee: Sammie Szmodics

It’s been an up and down month for the Posh but with eight points from their last four games, they’ve kept their promotion push on track.

Sammie Szmodics has been a key man throughout, with the electric playmaker scoring three times and adding two assists.

The Forwards

Nominees: Conor Washington, Jerry Yates

Conor Washington has not always been first choice since arriving at the Valley but he’s been excellent over the past month.

The Charlton striker scored four times and made 10 key passes in March, while also proving a real asset defensively for the Addicks.

The Blackpool marksman has been in terrific form recently, with his goals helping the Tangerines take 14 points as they went unbeaten in March and forced themselves back into the top six.

Jerry Yates has proved a constant nuisance for opposition defences over the past month, finding the net four times and taking 17 shots – with Championship clubs now reportedly paying attention.
