Oisin McEntee (NEW)

Republic of Ireland youth international McEntee was ever-present as Newcastle United won all three Division 2 matches without conceding, including the PL2 Tyne-Wear derby. The 19-year-old centre-back also featured and scored in the PL Cup as the Magpies reached the knockout stage for a third successive season.

Xande Silva (WHU)

It was a special month for the 22-year-old Portuguese forward, who made his return to action from an emergency stomach operation last summer. His goal and assist as a half-time substitute inspired a 4-2 comeback win at Sunderland, and he added further goals against Stoke City and Norwich City as the Division 2 leaders stayed unbeaten for the season.

Yannick Toure (NEW)

Born in Senegal but a Switzerland youth international, 19-year-old Toure scored two goals and set up two more in wins over Swansea City and fierce rivals Sunderland. The forward also found the net along with fellow PL2 Player of the Month nominee McEntee in a 6-2 PL Cup victory over Scunthorpe.
