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

They are as follows:-

Ryan Clarke (Oxford United)
The goalkeeper posted an unblemished record during January with clean sheets in each of his side's four games. He organised his defence superbly and pulled off a number of fine saves, none better than an acrobatic stop which earned a point at Exeter City.

John-Joe O'Toole (Bristol Rovers)
January produced three goals in four games for the attack-minded midfielder who has been given licence to go forward under John Ward. His all-action displays during the month were highlighted by a 90th-minute volleyed winner against West Country rivals Exeter City.

Jon Parkin (Fleetwood Town)
Having worked hard to get over a hamstring injury, the veteran has allied fitness to his natural strength. His clever hold-up play was supplemented with clinically-taken goals in wins over Accrington Stanley, Hartlepool United and Burton Albion.

Gary Roberts (Chesterfield)
The midfielder re-discovered his early season form to inspire Chesterfield's charge to the top of the Sky Bet League 2 table. He offered a creative spark and scored in four separate games, including a delightfully-hooked lob in the 3-1 win at Northampton Town.

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