McDonald nominated for December Player of the Month Award

4 January 2021

Walsall winger Wes McDonald has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two December Player of the Month Award.

The 23-year-old 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.
