SWINDON Town frontman Marc Richards has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month Award for February.

Striker Richards, 35, netted five goals in six games last month, including twice in the 3-2 victory over Port Vale and has scored seven times since arriving on a free transfer during the January transfer window.

The veteran frontman will be up against Carlisle United's Jamie Devitt, Jimmy Dunne of Accrington Stanley and Cheltenham Town's Mohamed Eisa for the award, with the winner announced on Friday morning. 

The judging panel is made up former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports' EFL League expert Don Goodman, EFL Marketing Director Drew Barrand, League Managers' Association director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL trader Mikey Mumford.
