The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month award for August have been announced.

They are as follows:-

Magnus Okuonghae (Colchester United)
A key figure in Colchester's solid start. Strong and physically imposing at the heart of the U's defence which conceded just four goals in five games, he also impressed with his ability to play the ball out from the back.

Romain Vincelot (Leyton Orient)
The rock upon which Orient's impeccable start has been founded. Restored to a midfield role, the Frenchman's positional play, tackling, ball-carrying and distribution were all pivotal to his team's attacking thrust in August.

Nahki Wells (Bradford City)
Made an effortless step up in class following promotion with five goals in as many matches. Returned from the summer fit and hungry, linking up with James Hanson and scoring impudently from a tight angle against Carlisle United.

Callum Wilson (Coventry City)
Given a belated first-team chance at 21, the club's academy product responded with six goals in five games. His natural pace and muscular style was supplemented with assured finishes against Bristol City, Preston North End and Shrewsbury Town.

The winners will be announced on Friday live on Sky Sports News.
