Winger Nicky Cadden has been named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for September.
It becomes the second award Cadden wins for the month of September, after scooping the Quorn Star award earlier this week.
Of Forest Green’s five goals, four of them came courtesy of rampaging Cadden runs down the left, either whipping in crosses at pace or dribbling inside to create havoc. Solid defensively, too, as Rovers didn’t concede a goal all month.
Cadden said: “It’s been a great month for me personally – and I am really delighted with the achievement. We’ve had a great start so far, so hopefully we can keep that going now.
“Our early success has been a team effort. They’re all coming up with some unbelievable stats – so we need to stay level-headed and remain consistent now."
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: "Forest Green remarkably kept their opponents goalless in September and whilst defending is one part of a wing back’s job description, Nicky Cadden also highlighted the offensive side of his game.
"So as well as staying rock solid at the back, Cadden was routinely involved in Rovers’ best attacks throughout the month, contributing four goal involvements and creating general chaos across League Two defences."
