Adam El-Abd is a contender for the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month award after playing his part in three vital clean sheets during the month of March.
The Chairboys’ captain has shown true leadership qualities to assist defensive partners Nathan McGinley and Sido Jombati in the absence of injured pair Dan Scarr and Anthony Stewart, helping to keep prolific Notts County strikers Shola Ameobi and Jon Stead well shackled during the 0-0 draw on Friday.
The judging panel said: “Wycombe’s unbeaten month has been largely down to improved defensive displays in which the experienced El-Abd has been pivotal. His gladiatorial presence as captain ensured that three clean sheets were kept during March.”
El-Abd faces competition from Crawley forward Karlan Ahearne-Grant, Cheltenham hotshot Mo Eisa and Lincoln frontman Ollie Palmer. The winner will be announced on Friday morning.
