However, The Park hasn't let that stop them from running a Fans Player of the Month poll for January, with five fine nominees in contention.
All five players put in excellent performances last Saturday and now you have the opportunity to reward your favourite by voting for them here.
Voting has now closed. The winner will be announced in The Park pull-out on Monday 13 February
