An excellent month for the Robins’ goalkeeper as he keeps three cleans sheets in five games whilst also notching an assists. His performances, including the long-ball that set up the winner against Accrington Stanley, have helped Cheltenham rise to second in the table after some tipped the club to struggle this season.
He’s pulled off a number of impressive saves to keep his side in games and it’s really paid off, the club have won games by one goal and that can be at least partially thanks to Carson. When you have your goalkeeper in top form, it helps breathe confidence through the side and Carson should be applauded for his efforts this month.
The 35-year-old veteran striker has been on fire to start the season, scoring four goals for a Morecambe side that sit in a surprising third position. He’s grabbed some stunning goals, his free-kick against Dagenham was sweetly struck but he topped it a week later with a sublime set piece against Newport.
He also showed everyone again that he’s lethal with his head, nodding a clever finish to draw level against Newport and with an excellent diving effort to grab the winnner against Oxford, Ellison showed that he can score all kinds of goals. He’s been a massive influence to the Shrimpers so far and has really engineered their early season form.
Murphy has turned out to have been an excellent summer signing, the 24-year-old has helped a Wycombe side who only beat off relegation on the last game of the season to three wins to lift them into fifth after five games. His three goals have really contributed to that and he’s already a crowd favourite, admired for his driving runs that really get this Wanderers’ side clicking.
A clever near-post finish got his season started at Newport, a late surge into the box allowed him a simple tap-in against Carlisle and a well-worked free-kick gave him the easiest of finishes in front of the keeper against Stevenage. It’s been a great month for the former Accrington Stanley player who has gelled in to this side from the first whistle.
A player that’s no stranger to scoring bags of goals in League Two, Matt Tubbs has had a terrific start to his AFC Wimbledon career. Four goals in five starts shouldn’t surprise anyone, using his trademark pace and accurate finishing to help his side shake off the cobwebs and sit in a comfortable mid-table spot.
A nice flicked-on header opened his account against Shrewsbury, a wonderful touch and finish from an Adebayo Akinfenwa assist gave him the winner against Luton whilst another lovely touch of the chest and half-volley gave him his third against Hartlepool. He scored his scrappiest goal against Stevenage but he won’t mind, Tubbs is paid to score goals and that’s exactly what he’s delivered.
