Former Egypt international has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month award for March.

The 33-year-old defender currently plies his trade at League Two side , whose manager Gareth Ainsworth decided to name him as the team captain despite only joining last summer.

And he repaid the faith shown in him by guiding the team to the third place in the league table [the final automatic promotion spot].

Moreover, he helped the team keep three clean sheets during the month of March against each of Barnet, Port Vale, and Notts County as the Chairboys went through the month unbeaten.

The judging panel said: “Wycombe’s unbeaten month has been largely down to improved defensive displays in which the experienced El-Abd has been pivotal.

“His gladiatorial presence as captain ensured that three clean sheets were kept during March,” they added.

El-Abd is up against Crawley forward Karlan Ahearne-Grant, Mohamed Eisa of Cheltenham, Lincoln’s Ollie Palmer, with the winner to be announced on Friday, April 6.

It’s worth mentioning that the former Brighton & Hove defender started the April month with a goal and an assist as Wycombe came back from behind to beat Grimsby Town at home.

Wycombe currently sit third place, the final automatic promotion spot, with 74 points from 41 games. They will next take on Yeovil Town on April 14 in the 42nd week of the Football League 2.

El-Abd has represented the Egyptian national team seven times, scoring once against Uganda in a friendly game, but his last international appearance came in September 2013 against Guinea in a World Cup qualifier which the Pharaohs won 4-2.
