O's striker up for November Player of the Month prizeORIENT striker David Mooney has been nominated for the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month award for November.
The forward had a sparkling month as he bagged a fine brace at Peterborough United before goals against Swindon and Bristol City in the League. Whilst the award only takes into account League performances, Mooney also notched two further goals in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at Stevenage and at home in the FA Cup in the win over Southport to take his current tally to 15 goals in all competitions.
The full list of nominees is as follows:
Joe Jacobson (Shrewsbury Town) – full-back
Not renowned for his goals, the Welsh defender scored a screamer in the 2-0 victory over Sheffield United and a header in the win at Stevenage to add to typically solid displays at the back as Shrewsbury picked up nine points.
Ryan Lowe (Tranmere Rovers) – striker
An outstanding individual performance with a stunning hat-trick in 5-1 win at Coventry City - a clinical finish, a deft chip and a 30-yard from the touchline. Also scored both goals against Colchester United which made it five in November.
David Mooney (Leyton Orient) - striker
A second nomination this season for the Irishman whose variety of goals – four in November - make him difficult to stop. Two fine finishes at Peterborough United and a beautifully clipped equaliser at Swindon Town secured vital victories.
Joe Garner (Preston North End) - striker
Scored all five of his team’s goals in the four games he played in November, including a wonderfully controlled hooked winner at Leyton Orient, two headers and an unstoppable 20-yarder in the 2-0 victory at Port Vale.
The winners will be announced on Friday December 6 2013
