Dale Shortlisted For December Player Of The Month Award

6 January 2021

Alex forward Owen Dale has been nominated for Sky Bet League One's Player of the Month award for December.

Dale has been recognised for his impressive form in the build-up to Christmas after notching four goals in as many games and helping his teammates to remain unbeaten throughout the month.

Here's who he will be challenging for the prize:

Jonson Clarke-Harris (Peterborough United) - striker

Postponements limited Peterborough to four games in the month, but that didn’t stop Clarke-Harris finding the net five times as he continued to lead the line with intelligence and force. Exhibit A was his 17-minute hat-trick against Rochdale.

Owen Dale (Crewe Alexandra) – winger

With much of Crewe’s attacking play coming down their left wing, Dale stepped in from the right to contribute four goals and an assist. No ordinary goals either, a solo run and finish against Plymouth and a stunning overhead kick at Burton.

Brennan Johnson (Lincoln City) - midfielder

Given the freedom to express himself in Michael Appleton’s young side, the on-loan teenager helped Lincoln regain first place in style. Having scored twice and contributed an assist against Northampton, he did the same against Burton.

Jack Stephens (Oxford United) - goalkeeper

Finally awarded his chance with his side not having kept a clean sheet in League One since February, Stephens kept four of them in six games. Happy to leave his area to sweep up trouble, he produced flying saves against Wimbledon.
