The nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month award for December have been announced.

They are as follows:-

Deon Burton (Scunthorpe United)
Burton's positioning and opportunism were apparent in a crisp finish for his second against Morecambe, while a neat header at Oxford United lifted his team into the top three. The 37-year-old predator scored four goals in as many games during the month.

Michael Flynn (Newport County)
Flynn's experience was vital in pushing County into the Play-Off places, urging his team-mates on and leading by example with both goals at Portsmouth and a technically brilliant volley for the winner at Wycombe Wanderers.

Tom Nichols (Exeter City)
Nichols' hold-up play and driving runs were a revelation during December. The 20-year-old scored two goals on his first start of the season at Accrington Stanley, including a delightful chip, and lit up the Devon derby with a fine strike at Torquay United.

Ross Worner (AFC Wimbledon)
Worner has overcome a shaky start with the Dons to display his full range of shot-stopping, which has won over the fans. He conceded just two goals in three matches and produced several brilliant saves to preserve a goalless draw at home to Mansfield Town.

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