James Collins‘ reward for five goals, including four against Portsmouth, is to take the Player of the Month Award for January.

In second is Alan McCormack. The central defender, used at left back in Jay McEveley’s absence, has played all but five minutes of matches in January and was integral to a defence that secured four clean sheets and conceded once – at AFC Bournemouth.

Wes Foderingham is just behind in third and is ranked in the top three for the reasons as the Irishman with his score taking a bit more a dent owing to that goal conceded at Dean Court. 15 clean sheets so far this season is a magnificent return for the ‘keeper.

How it works…

Swindon Town players receive a score based on their performance in all league and cup fixtures based upon the statistics collated by the Press Association and published by BBC Sport. The format of the scoring is very similar to that used in the Fantasy Premier League, with some exceptions.

  • For playing up to 60 minutes = 1 point
  • For playing 60 minutes or more = 2 points
  • For each goal scored by a goalkeeper or defender = 6 points
  • For each goal scored by a midfielder = 5 points
  • For each goal scored by a forward = 4 points
  • For each hat trick scored = 3 points
  • For each goal assist = 3 points
  • For a clean sheet by a goalkeeper or defender = 4 points
  • For a clean sheet by a midfielder = 1 point
  • For every 3 shot saves by a goalkeeper = 1 point
  • For each penalty save = 5 points
  • For each substitute appearance having a positive impact on the final result = 2 points
  • For each substitute appearance having a negative impact on the final result = minus 2 points
  • For each penalty miss = minus 2 points
  • For every 2 goals conceded by a goalkeeper or defender = minus 1 point
  • For each yellow card = minus 1 point
  • For each red card = minus 3 points
  • For each own goal = minus 2 points
