MICHAEL Coulson and Russell Penn have joined Femi Ilesanmi at the top of The Press Player of the Year leaderboard.

The trio are locked together on 11 points with Coulson earning three as our man of the match during last weekend's 1-1 home draw against Mansfield and Penn (one) also rewarded as The Press' third-highest rated performer.

Deigo De Girolamo (two points) was recognised, too, as our second-highest rated player.

The two Player of the Month bonus points, awarded to the player who received the most online man-of-the-match votes, went to De Girolamo, but he was pipped to the October honours by Ilesanmi.

To be in with a chance of presenting the City left back with his prize - a framed photograph - at Bootham Crescent, please vote for your man of the match from today’s game at Cheltenham on this website or tweeting @daveflettpress
