Ipswich Town winger Gwion Edwards has been nominated for October’s League One player of the month award.

Edwards has been a real highlight of Town’s season so far, running at defenders, carving out chances and, most importantly, scoring goals.

Edwards is Town’s leading scorer so far this season, with five goals in 11 league games. He’s also added three assists.
