Oldham’s O’Grady up for Player of the month

Oldham Athletic’s fantastic week could be about to finish on a high for one of their players with striker Chris O’Grady being nominated for League Two’s Player of the Month for December.

The 32-year old made seven appearances for the club during the festive month and bagged himself seven goals in the process.

His tally included a hattrick at home to Bury in the middle of December during their 4-2 win.

O’Grady faces stiff opposition to take home to title with Lincoln City’s John Akinde also up for it. The target man contributed four goals and an assist in the league for the club.

Also, on the nomination list is Danny Grainger from Carlisle United who scored against Oldham in their 6-0 hammering on Boxing Day.

The defender also chipped in for two clean sheets, three goals and an assist during December.

Finally, George Williams from Forest Green Rovers scored five goals in four games including a hattrick at Newport County to bag his name on the list of possible winners.

The winner is expected to be announced later on in the week.
