REPUBLIC OF IRELAND international Matt Doherty has been nominated for the Premier League’s Player of the Month award for February. 

The wing-back was part of a Wolves side that kept three clean sheets across the month, and he notched an assist in a 3-0 win over Norwich. Wolves remained unbeaten in the league across February, and progressed to the last-16 of the Europa League. 

They have picked up where they left off, and a 3-2 win at Spurs has left them in contention for a Champions League place. 

Following injury to Seamus Coleman, Doherty is likely to start for Ireland in the Euro 2020 play-off away to Slovakia later this month.

Marcos Alonso, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bruno Fernandes and Nick Pope are vying with Doherty for the award.

Robbie Keane is the last Irish player to win the Premier League’s official monthly award, for Tottenham in April 2007.

The Cavan native has been training with the Newcastle United first team since injury to Ciaran Clark, and was ever-present as the Magpies won all three Division 2 matches without conceding, including the PL2 Tyne-Wear derby.
