The nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month award for August have been announced.
They are as follows:-
Jim Bentley (Morecambe)
Inspired his players to four straight wins to start the 2014/15 Sky Bet League 2 campaign. The team spirit he engendered was shown in abundance in the 3-2 comeback-win over Newport County.
Micky Mellon (Shrewsbury Town)
Made an immediate impact in Shropshire, banishing memories of relegation with a surge of attacking play that collected 11 points, with 11 goals, from five unbeaten matches to become the division's leading scorers.
Gary Rowett (Burton Albion)
No sign of any Play-Off Final hangover, Rowett is filling his players with energy and determination. They picked up 13 points from 15 to sit top of Sky Bet League 2, conceding just three goals.
Mark Yates (Cheltenham Town)
A near-perfect month as his side established itself as promotion contenders. Away wins at Bury and Tranmere Rovers were the cornerstones of a 13-point haul from five matches, which included three clean sheets.
The winners will be announced on Friday.
