The April nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month Award are:

John Akinde (Barnet) – striker
Six goals in as many games for the powerful forward whose direct running and physicality have impressed throughout the League 2 season. Found the net twice in each of the home fixtures against Leyton Orient and Yeovil Town.

Tarique Fosu-Henry (Accrington Stanley) – winger
Three goals and two assists add up to quite an impact in April by the on-loan Reading winger. His pace and dynamism on the left of midfield have given Stanley an extra dimension going forward in their promotion push.

Fraser Franks (Stevenage) – full-back
A constant thread in the Stevenage defence this season, he has adapted to a new role at left-back with impressive ease. His versatility and solid tackling was evident as his team conceded just three goals in seven April games.

Lyle Taylor (AFC Wimbledon) – striker
His six goals out of a team total of eight proved invaluable as Wimbledon secured a Play-Off berth. Rangy, athletic and with an unerring eye for a spectacular finish, his two-goal salvoes secured away wins at Wycombe Wanderers and Dagenham & Redbridge.

Winners will be announced on Friday 6th May 2016.
