Dimitri Petratos has been named the young player of the month for January following some stellar form over the past few weeks.

Petratos joins teammates Jamie Maclaren and Brandon Borrello in the running for the award, with former Sydney full-back Alex Gersbach the other player in the running to date.
To further players will be nominated for the months of February and March, with the winner to be announced at the annual A-League awards night in April.
Previous winners include former Brisbane winger Tommy Oar (2009-10), Mat Ryan (2010-11 & 2011-12), Adam Taggart (2013-14) and James Jeggo (2014-15).
