Chesterfield's Gary Roberts has been named the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month for August.

Roberts' driving runs and dribbling trickery has inspired the Spireites to a stellar month. His three August goals included turning defenders inside-out to score against Cheltenham Town, and curling home a sumptuous free-kick against Southend United.

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook said: "Gary has worked really hard at the start of this Sky Bet League 2 campaign and that has been reflected in our results so far."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins added: "This particular signing caused a stir in the Sky Bet offices in June and so far Gary Roberts is living up to expectations.

"A player who stood out at times for Swindon Town and Huddersfield Town in League 1 was always likely to have a massive impact in League 2, and this has been the case so far."

Sky Bet Football League pundit Don Goodman also commented. He said: "Technically gifted and with an eye for goal, Gary Roberts has shown Chesterfield fans just why they're lucky to have a player like him in their team."
