With plenty of fine performances, who will get your vote as our in-house Player of the Month for February?

Adam Armstrong showed exactly why Tony Mowbray brought him to the club in the January transfer window, with four goals to his name in February.

The Newcastle loanee scored a goal against Oldham to start a Rovers comeback, before following that up with two at Portsmouth, which included a late winner.

And he completed his quartet of strikes with another goal against Bury in the Monday night victory live on Sky Sports. That goal made him the highest scorer in the division in that month.

Fellow Geordie hitman Danny Graham followed up four strikes in January with three in February, which included the opener against Bury before bagging the two at Walsall.

Darragh Lenihan is another one in the mix for the gong, and after coming off the bench at Portsmouth, will be claiming the assist for Armstrong's late winner.

He's since been involved in four consecutive wins in February along with two clean sheets in that victorious run.

Next up is Bradley Dack. Two goals on Tuesday night at AFC Wimbledon made him the second-highest top scorer in League One.

Before that, he set up the opening goal at Bury - a game he earned the Man of the Match award. He also bagged an assist for Armstrong's goal at home to Ewood.

The final nominee is Elliott Bennett. Benno played all six games in the month and finally ended his scoring drought at AFC Wimbledon.

Elliott has taken the armband on occasions this month, with Charlie Mulgrew missing the Plymouth trip, and has played in three positions, too.

A real club man, his fist pumps have almost been as consistent as his performances throughout February.
