Doncaster Rovers will be represented by four nominees at the annual EFL Awards it has been announced.

Striker John Marquis and veteran midfielder James Coppinger will fight it out to be named League Two player of the year after being named on the three man shortlist.

The pair face competition from Luton Town forward Danny Hylton.

Marquis has netted 23 goals so far in what has been a breakout season for the striker since joining Rovers last summer.

Rovers' all time leading appearance maker Coppinger has turned back the clock during a magnificent campaign which has so far delivered nine goals and 13 assists.

Club captain Andy Butler has been nominated for the PFA Player of the Community prize.

He will contest the award with Liam Rosenior of Brighton and Hove Albion and Portsmouth's Christian Burgess.

And fan Paul Mayfield has been nominated for the EFL Supporter of the Year.

Secretary of the Retford Branch of the Rovers Supporters' Club, Mayfield shows tireless dedication to the club and hit headlines earlier this year after travelling to Yeovil Town to watch Rovers just days after the sudden death of his partner Jill McGarry.

The winners of the EFL Awards will be announced at a ceremony in London on April 9.
