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

They are as follows:-

Kieran Agard (Rotherham United)
Having been used in a wide role, Agard began operating more centrally in April and netted five goals in six games. His positional sense found him the necessary space in the area and he proved his worth to score as a substitute against Port Vale.

David Edwards (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
A hard-working presence in the centre of the Wolves midfield all season, Edwards discovered his goalscoring touch in April. The Welshman scored in four separate games including in the 2-0 victory at Crewe Alexandra as Wolves sealed promotion.

Paul Gallagher (Preston North End)
April was an outstanding month for the Scot who created havoc on both wings. Of the 14 goals Preston scored in three home games, he scored four - including a hat-trick in the 5-2 win over Shrewsbury Town. He set up eight more with his passing and mobility.

Jack Grealish (Notts County)
The 18-year-old has been a revelation since joining on loan from Aston Villa. His willingness to take on defenders helped County to three vital home wins, turning defenders inside out to set up two goals against Port Vale and another versus Swindon Town.

The winners will be announced on Friday.
