The August nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month Award are:

James Coppinger (Doncaster Rovers) – midfielder
Began the season back to his dynamic best, tirelessly roaming the midfield for his team. Handed the captain`s armband, he scored a superb equaliser in the draw with Crawley, one of two August goals to go with three assists.

Brennan Dickenson (Colchester United) – winger
Released by Gillingham in the summer, Dickenson has become a firm favourite in Essex already with three goals and an assist in his first five games. Loves to attack full-backs and fire over crosses as much as he relishes scoring himself.

Alex Kiwomya (Crewe Alexandra) – winger
Substitute in the first two games, the 20-year-old has quickly established himself with his direct running at opposition players. His exciting dribbling skills and sureshot finishing saw him score stunning individual goals at Stevenage and Newport.

Barry Roche (Morecambe) – goalkeeper
The solid foundation upon which Morecambe`s rise to the top of League Two was based. Outstanding against Yeovil and Accrington, he eclipsed those performances with a series of breathtaking saves in the 2-0 win over Portsmouth.

Winners will be announced on Friday 9th September 2016.
