MILLWALL centre-back Byron Webster has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One player of the month award for April.

Webster scored three goals in six games in April – including a brace against Oldham last weekend that helped clinch Millwall’s place in the play-offs – to take his season’s tally to six.

The 29-year-old defender has formed a strong partnership with Mark Beevers in the centre of Millwall’s defence.

Neil Harris’ side kept three clean sheets in April, and have conceded just once in their last seven games at The Den.

Webster was voted NewsAtDen’s player of the month for April.

Wigan striker Will Grigg, Oldham's Curtis Main and Scunthorpe' Luke Williams are the other players nominated.

The winner will be announced on Friday morning.
