Karl Robinson and Ben Amos nominated for monthly EFL awards

Charlton Manager Karl Robinson has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One October Manager for the Month award and goalkeeper Ben Amos has been nominated for Player of the Month award.

Robinson oversaw an unbeaten October for the Addicks, as they claimed three wins from four. 

The month saw 1-0 home victories over Doncaster Rovers and AFC Wimbledon, whilst four points were picked up on the road with a 1-1 draw at Oxford United and a 1-0 victory against Bradford City to lift Charlton up to fourth in League One, with a game in hand on those above.

Meanwhile, Amos had a fine month. The 27-year-old kept three clean sheets, conceding just the one goal in 360 minutes of football. The Bolton-loanee saved ten shots on his goal throughout October, making a number of crucial saves.

Charlton were indebted to the goalkeeper in Yorkshire as he produced an outstanding performance away at Bradford. The former Manchester United man kept out a close-range header from striker Charlie Wyke in the 27th minute, before making vital late saves from Omari Patrick and Matt Kilgallon to ensure an unbeaten month for his side. 

Amos is up against Blackburn Rovers’ Bradley Dack, Walsall’s Erhun Oztumer and Plymouth Argyle’s Graham Carey, while Robinson is up against Oldham Athletic’s Richie Wellens, Wigan Athletic’s Paul Cook and Gillingham’s Steve Lovell.
