Peterborough United striker Jack Marriott has been nominated for the EFL League One player of the month award for March.

The in-form forward hit five goals in as many matches last month - including a last minute winner versus Bury and an equaliser at Rotherham.

He's helped guide his team back into the Play-Off places. He's up against Fleetwood's Alex Cairns, Chey Dunkley of Wigan and former Ipswich Town player Brett Pitman who's now with Portsmouth.

Staying in League One, MK Dons boss Dan Micciche has been nominated for the manager of the month award. He's up against Wigan's Paul Cook, Fleetwood's John Sheridan and Keith Hill of Rochdale.

Both awards are announced on Friday.
