August PotM Nomination - Cairns (Fleetwood)
The August nominations for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month Award are:
Patrick Bauer (Charlton Athletic) - central defender
The German impressed at both ends of the pitch. A commanding presence in a defence which conceded just three goals in four games, he used his aerial prowess to score headed opening goals against Bristol Rovers and Rotherham.
Alex Cairns (Fleetwood Town) - goalkeeper
Three clean sheets in his first three games of the season for the Fleetwood keeper. He made two notable stops against Rotherham, but it was his astonishing triple save in the 1-0 win at Northampton which really stood out.
Jack Marriott (Peterborough United) - striker
What a way to announce your arrival at a new club. Six goals in his first four games for Posh included a hat-trick at Bristol Rovers and an impudent lob against Rotherham that sums up both his trickery and his calm finishing.
Kieffer Moore (Rotherham United) - striker
Rotherham`s lacklustre start to life in League One could not be blamed on their 6ft 5in loanee who scored four goals from three starts. His quick feet impressed as a substitute on opening day. He then scored a first-half hat-trick against Southend.
Winners will be announced on Friday 8th September 2017.
