Tuesday, 10th November 2020, 6:00 am

Watters began October at non-league Maidstone having been released by Doncaster in the summer. His first five EFL games for Crawley brought a remarkable five goals for the 21-year-old who looks unflustered in front on goal.

He scored on his debut for the club against Arsenal u21s in the EFL Trophy before scoring two against Morecambe and one against each of Exeter City and Tranmere.

He is up against:

Max Watters.

Jon Mellish (Carlisle United) – midfielder Out of favour as a central defender, Mellish was tried in midfield in the reserves by Chris Beech in January and a box-to-box, all-action midfielder was born. His four goals in October were the result of uncanny instincts of when to burst forward.

Paul Mullin (Cambridge United) - striker A second straight nomination for a hard-working forward who had never scored more than nine goals in a season before. He managed eight in seven October games alone, even pirouetting for the third goal of his hat-trick against Port Vale.

Scott Twine (Newport County) – midfielder Three goals and two assists for the young midfielder do not tell the full story of his sharp-shooting impact for Newport. Happy to take on and unleash shots from all ranges and angles, his goals are lasered things of beauty.

All winners will be announced on Friday, November 13.

The judging panel for the Sky Bet Player of the Month comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
