Colchester United’s leading marksman, Luke Norris, has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two player-of-the-month for September.

Norris has already netted seven goals in nine appearances this term, including five in six games last month.

The 25-year-old ex-Swindon Town front-runner, who is a doubt for the U’s home match against Yeovil Town tonight, due to a sore ankle, also weighed in with two assists for team-mates during a productive September.
