Wes McDonald Nominated for December's Player of the Month Award

Walsall winger Wes is up for an award.
Walsall winger Wes McDonald has been named among the nominees for the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month Award for December.

The 23-year-old, who has made twenty-seven first-team appearances so far this season, notched up two goals and three assists during the month which included a stunning strike against Tranmere Rovers.

All nominees for the award are as follows:

Rhys Bennett (Carlisle United) - central defender
After a fitful, nomadic career, the cultured defender is enjoying life at the heart of an attacking Carlisle side. A strong leader at the back, he also found time to contribute two headed goals, including the winner at Bradford.

Wes McDonald (Walsall) – winger
No player typifies Walsall’s attacking resurgence more than McDonald whose energy and willingness to run at defenders earned a penalty, brought three other assists and two goals, including a 20-yard stunner at Tranmere.

Carlos Mendes-Gomes (Morecambe) - striker
From his native Senegal via Atletico Madrid and West Didsbury & Chorlton, the striker has found a home in Morecambe and dazzled in December, showcasing both dancing feet and scoring instincts with five goals and an assist in six games.

Max Watters (Crawley Town) – striker
Another six goals in six games for the 21-year-old striker who seemingly came from nowhere prior to joining Crawley in October. Two superb finishes as a substitute at Mansfield were followed by a poacher’s hat-trick against Barrow.

The winner will be announced on Friday, 8th January. The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
