The Town's tremendous form in December has seen a number of Hatters selected for different League One monthly awards.

Town defender Matty Pearson has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award, whilst Nathan Jones has been shortlised for the manager award.

James Shea and James Collins have been nominated for the PFA Bristol Street Motors League One Player of the Month award for December, which supporters can vote for by selecting their choice in the poll at the bottom of this story. 

The Hatters took 13 points from a possible 15 in the final month of 2018, as they climbed up to second in the third tier.

Wins over Fleetwood, Coventry, Burton and Scunthorpe, as well as a draw with Walsall to round off the year, saw Town top the form tables in professional football in the UK.

Matty Pearson's dominant defensive displays saw him help the Hatters to three league clean sheets last month, as well as netting in the 2-1 win over Coventry City.

The ex-Barnsley man has proved to be hugely popular with supporters since his arrival from Oakwell and has played the full 90 minutes in all but one of the Town's 26 League One games this campaign.

The league sponsors said about Matty: 'A defender who loves defending, Pearson's no-nonsense style is loved by fans and his manager alike. An outstanding month in which he helped to preserve three clean sheets and found time to equalise at a corner against Coventry.'

The winners of the EFL Awards will be announced on Friday – good luck guys!
