The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award for September.Mark Cooper (Swindon Town)
Swindon collected a haul of 10 points from 12 in a successful month, which included a stirring 5-2 win over Sheffield United and a 3-0 victory at Barnsley. Cooper has his players believing in style with substance.
Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)
Another stellar month in charge at Ashton Gate for Cotterill. Four wins and a draw saw his fluent City team move five points clear, scoring three goals on four occasions as they maintained their attacking surge.
Keith Hill (Rochdale)
Hill has harnessed the momentum gained from last season’s promotion campaign beautifully. Four wins in five games included handsome 4-0 victories against Crawley Town and Walsall as Dale surged into the Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off positions.
Lee Johnson (Oldham Athletic)
Two wins and three draws in September lifted Oldham into the top half of the table and justified Johnson’s faith in his side. Superbly organised, three clean sheets included a 1-0 win over previously unbeaten Fleetwood Town.
The winners will be announced on Friday.
