The nominations for the npower League 2 Player of the Month award for January have been announced.

They are as follows:-

Chris Hackett (Northampton Town)
The supplier of many of his side's goals in their four wins with his crossing ability - both at pace and from dead-ball situations. Difficult to contain and scored twice himself as Northampton Town moved into the top three in npower League 2.

Paul McCallum (AFC Wimbledon)
Four goals in four January games for the 19-year-old loanee from West Ham United. All of them were important goals, too, including the winner at Rochdale. His strength to hold off defenders and positional sense in the area were particularly notable.

Tom Parkes (Bristol Rovers)
Outstanding in the month in which he turned 21. Given the captain's armband, he led the way in the Rovers' revival, standing up to tackles, especially in the wins at Fleetwood Town and Rotherham United, and impressing with his distribution from the back.

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