Midfielder Payne has been nominated for the Player of the Month honour after a brilliant month, where he scored twice in the league and grabbed a few assists along the way.
Payne is joined by Wycombe captain Paul Hayes, Northampton Town striker Marc Richards and Luton Town defender Luke Wilkinson.
The winners for both awards will be announced on Friday 10th October.
The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Head of Communications John Nagle; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
