Ipswich Town’s Gwion Edwards was up for player of the month, but missed out to Charlton Athletic stopper Ben Amos.

Edwards netted three times in October for the Blues - twice in the 4-1 thumping of Blackpool at the seaside, and again in the following game, a 2-0 win over Accrington Stanley at Portman Road.

Amos, however, kept six clean sheets, and got the vote ahead of Edwards and two strikers - Portsmouth’s Marcus Harness and Siriki Dembele of Peterborough.
