Chris Wilder named Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month

11 December 2015

Northampton Town boss Chris Wilder has been named the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month for November.

Wilder set aside concerns over the future of the club to inspire his team to a perfect month with four wins out of four.

The togetherness he has instilled lifted Northampton into the automatic promotion places.

George Burley, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, said: “Chris has done a terrific job with Northampton Town, while also having to deal with a lot of difficult problems off the field.

“He has achieved a 100 per cent record this month with two really solid home wins and two outstanding away performances at Notts County and Crawley Town.”

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “What a month it’s been for Northampton Town and Chris Wilder.

“They started November with the threat of a winding up order hanging over them, and have ended it in the automatic promotion places with a new owner at the helm.

“He deserves a huge amount of credit for the fact that he was able to keep his players focussed and motivated - testament to his management capabilities.”

The Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town boss George Burley, Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
