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

They are as follows:-

Britt Assombalonga (Peterborough United)
The forward showcased his range of striking talents in the 3-0 win at Bristol City, firstly with an impeccably-timed rising shot, then a dreamy run, dribbling away from defenders and finishing emphatically. The 20-year-old also scored against Milton Keynes Dons.

Scott Laird (Preston North End)
Laird returned to his rampaging best during September as an attacking left-back who provides assists and goals. He did both in the 3-0 win over former club Stevenage and has added balance and power to the left side of the Preston team.

David Mooney (Leyton Orient)
Four goals in as many games for Mooney helped to continue Leyton Orient's stunning start. The first of his two in the 3-2 win over Port Vale was a beautifully timed volley. He links up with strike partner Kevin Lisbie to pull defenders around.

Kyel Reid (Bradford City)
Reid regained his place in the Bradford team with a string of match-winning displays on the left. He terrorised defenders and added pace to the Bantams' attack. The 25-year-old's crosses and dead ball deliveries provided chances for others, while he scored the equaliser against Shrewsbury Town.

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