Chesterfield are celebrating an award double in League Two.

Gary Roberts has landed the player of the month prize on the same morning Spireites chief Paul Cook was named manager of the month.

Roberts’ impressive start to the season included three goals in August. Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: “This particular signing caused a stir in the Sky Bet offices in June and so far Gary Roberts is living up to expectations.

“A player who stood out at times for Swindon and Huddersfield in League 1 was always likely to have a massive impact in League 2, and this has been the case so far.”
