Centre-half scoops monthly gong

Town defender Luke Wilkinson has been named the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month for September.

The Hatters did not concede a goal with Wilkinson in the side in September and the centre-half notched his first goal for the club in the 2-0 win over Oxford three weeks ago.

John Still told lutontown.co.uk: “Luke has done tremendously since joining us and his form is testament to a fantastic attitude.

“Baring in mind he had a little injury during pre-season he has worked incredibly hard to get fully fit and play an important role in the team.

“The defence as a whole has been magnificent but I still think you’re yet to see the best of Luke Wilkinson.”

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “He has thankfully recovered from a back injury and his presence makes the Luton defence difficult to breach.

“They did not concede a goal in September, need I say more.”

Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery said: “It would have been 100/1 for Luton to have kept clean sheets in each of the four games in which Luke Wilkinson played, but that’s exactly what they did. 

“Luke also grabbed himself a goal during Luton’s 2-0 victory over Oxford. He was 25/1 to grab the first of the game, and 12/1 to score at any point during that game.”

In the Sky Bet Championship, Tyrone Mings of Ipswich was named Sky Bet Player of the Month.

The Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month Award went to Chesterfield striker Steve Cotterill.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery
