Adam Armstrong and Danny Graham's impressive form in front of goal has been officially recognised by the PFA.

After helping fire Rovers to the top of the table, the strike duo have both been nominated for February's Bristol Street Motors League One Player of the Month Award.

Armstrong, who has also been shortlisted for the Sky Bet Player of the Month award, netted four goals from five starts in February and claimed two assists.

The young forward celebrated his 21st birthday with his first Rovers goal in the 2-2 draw at home to Oldham, before bagging a brilliant brace in the 2-1 victory at Portsmouth.

Armstrong was on target again in the 2-0 victory over Bury, before turning provider in the away wins over Walsall and Wimbledon.

Top scorer Graham took his tally to 15 for the season in all competitions - and 150 in his career - with three league goals last month.

The fans favourite opened the scoring in the 2-0 victory over Bury - a win which saw Rovers rise to the top of the table - before the 32-year-old netted both goals in the 2-1 victory away to Walsall.

Graham, who has led the line brilliantly in recent weeks, rounded off a memorable month by setting up Bradley Dack's superb second goal at Wimbledon, as Rovers recorded a fourth league win on the spin. 

The deadly duo are up against Rotherham pair Joe Newell and Semi Ajayi, Bury's George Miller and Southend's Jason Demetriou for the prestigious PFA player prize.

Graham and Armstrong will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Rovers team-mates Marcus Antonsson, who scooped the November award, and Bradley Dack, who picked up the December prize.
