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

They are as follows:-

Michael Doyle (Sheffield United)
The United captain provided an almost impregnable shield to a defence which kept six clean sheets during March. He protected the back four with numerous blocks and tackles, and was especially outstanding at Preston North End and Crawley Town.

Ronan Murray (Notts County)
The Irishman's return to the line-up triggered an upturn in Notts County's fortunes and sparked a scoring surge from the 22-year-old with five goals in four starts. His directness had defenders back-pedalling while his finishing was clinical.

James Tavernier (Rotherham United)
The pacey Newcastle United loanee has been outstanding in both defence and attack. He contributed to five clean sheets in six matches and scored three goals — two stunning free-kicks and a 30-yard pile-driver against Bristol City.

Callum Wilson (Coventry City)
The 22-year-old's poise in front of goal continues to amaze in his first season of League football. He has assumed sole responsibility up front since Leon Clarke left and scored in five straight games, notching seven goals in total.

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