The Robins started 2019 with an emphatic 4-1 away victory on New Year’s Day, with all four candidates playing an important role in the triumph at Huish Park.
Experienced striker Luke Varney scored the opener that day, as he started a month in which he would finish as the current leading scorer in the Cheltenham team so far this season with eight to date.
Varney’s next goal was a cool finish after a sublime team move as the Robins went ahead only to lose 3-1 at home to Tranmere Rovers.
The well-travelled forward then started a fine second half comeback against Macclesfield Town in the last game of January, steering home a spectacular bicycle kick as he finished the month with three goals scored.
A nominee for the second month in a row, left sided defender Chris Hussey continued his consistent performances that started at the end of 2018.
Hussey’s all-round contribution and crossing ability has seen him remain as a mainstay in the team since mid-October as his athleticism has been a great asset down the left flank.
Attacking midfielder Jacob Maddox, who already has one POTM award to his name, finished the month strongly with a Man of the Match display against Macclesfield.
The Chelsea loanee scored his first Sky Bet League goal against the Silkmen and registered an assist in the win at Yeovil.
Irishman Kevin Dawson has impressed since returning from injury and scored his second and third goals of the season in January.
He first netted against his former club Yeovil before stooping to score a diving header in the Checkatrade Trophy tie with Oxford United at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
Dawson was another who made a positive impact off the bench against Macclesfield and his versatility and energy have helped the Robins in their better performances over the last month.
