Walsall Football Club defender Paul Downing is amongst the nominees for Sky Bet League One Player of the Month for December.

Downing, who joined the Saddlers in August 2012 came through the ranks at West Bromwich Albion, signing pro terms in 2009, he failed to make a first team appearance for the Baggies but did gain experience during loan spells with, Hereford United, Rotherham United, Shrewsbury Town and Barnet.

Also nominated, are;

Jose Baxter (Sheffield United) - midfielder
Given the freedom to roam and use his passing ability to worry opposition defences, he also contributed three goals - a header and two powerful strikes - the highlight a stunning 30-yard equaliser against former club Oldham Athletic. 

Stephen Gleeson (Milton Keynes Dons) - midfielder
Finally recovering his form after a long-term injury, the Irishman scored two stunning goals – against Port Vale and an angled dipping volley at Crawley Town. His box-to-box energy was vital in his side winning all of his December games. 

Sam Saunders (Brentford) – winger
Alternating between the wing and the centre, he drove his side forward throughout a stellar December. Two assists and three goals featured a stunning free-kick against Swindon Town and a terrific 20-yard strike against MK Dons.

The winner will be announced on Friday.
