Fleetwood Town striker Jon Parkin is one of four nominees for January's League Two Player of the Month award.

Jon Parkin has been nominated for January's League Two Player of the Month award because of his performances for Fleetwood Town.

The 32-year-old striker is joined by Oxford United goalkeeper Ryan Clarke, John-Joe O'Toole of Bristol Rovers and Chesterfield's Gary Roberts in being put forward.

Parkin scored in three of Fleetwood's five games as they went unbeaten in January to close in on the top of the table.

Oxford keeper Clarke didn't let in a single goal in the Us' four games as they maintained their title challenge.

Rovers may be struggling towards the bottom of the table, but O'Toole found the net three times from midfield last month.

Two of those three came in a match-winning brace against Exeter City that included a 90th-minute winner on the volley.

Finally, Roberts scored in four of Chesterfield's five games as they soared to the top of the table.

The winner will be announced on Friday.
