The nominations for the npower League 1 Player of the Month award for February have been announced.

They are as follows:-

Fabian Brandy (Walsall)
The 24-year-old gave a series of dazzling displays, running defences ragged, skipping past opponents at will and setting the tempo for his side. He scored the winner in the 2-1 victory at Doncaster Rovers and remarkably drew a standing ovation from the home fans at Carlisle United.

Peter Hartley (Hartlepool United)
The local boy and club captain led his side's fight against relegation in February. He allied his ability to read the game to his physical strength, ensuring greater defensive stability for Pools. Calm in possession, he also powered home vital headed goals in the wins over Notts County and Leyton Orient.

Paddy Madden (Yeovil Town)
It's been a second successive stellar month for the Irishman, who bagged another five goals in six games to add to his astonishing work rate. His commitment to harrying defences has been pivotal to Yeovil Town's surge into the Play-Off places and a testament to his predatory instincts.

The winners will be announced on Friday live on Sky Sports News, from 9am.
