Tristan Abrahams (Newport County)
His four goals in the group stages topped the scoring charts. He was at the centre of a remarkable 7-4 win at Cheltenham, claiming a stunning hat-trick and winning a penalty. Saving the best until last, his hat-trick goal was a sublime 20-yard curler into the top corner.
Maxime Biamou (Coventry City)
With goalless draws in their first two Group D fixtures, Coventry needed a goalscorer to step forward against Southampton Under-21s. Enter Biamou, whose neat finish and penalty put them 2-0 up. After the visitors made it 2-2, he then re-emerged to score a 93rd-minute winner.
Jordan Clark (Accrington Stanley)
The elegant midfielder claimed an assist and a chipped finish in the 3-0 win at Oldham but it was against Liverpool’s youngsters that he really shone, indulging in a spot of shooting practice, hitting both post and bar with efforts before finally curling home a beauty.
Kieran Dewsbury-Hall (Leicester City)
The hard-working midfielder made an impact in all three of his side’s fixtures, allying industry to an eye for a pass as well as his delivery from dead balls. He scored with a fierce drive at Scunthorpe and with a stunning long-range winner against Sunderland.
Jordan Roberts (Ipswich Town)
The Ipswich winger took advantage of playing time in the competition to showcase his predatory instincts and score his first goals for the club. He used his ability to find space between defenders to score both goals in the 2-1 win over Tottenham and reacted to slide home against Gillingham.
