Peterborough United forward Jon Taylor been shortlisted for the League One Player-of-the-Month award for October.

Taylor’s citation read: “Taylor stood out for his energy as much as the quality of his long-range shooting. Two delightful goals against Millwall and another at Swindon Town complemented his ball-carrying ability.”
