Marriott’s citation read: ‘Five goals in five games, including two at Bradford, and a second nomination this season for the arch goal-poacher. Always in the right place, his coolness in front of goal makes chances look easy that would be difficult for others.’

Marriott’s rivals for the award include Dan Burn (Wigan), Andy Butler (Doncaster) and Bradley Dack (Blackburn).

Posh teammate Marcus Maddison won the October player-of-the-month prize.
