The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award for January.Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)
In the month they reached Wembley, the Robins played just two league games but six points, six goals scored and none conceded kept Cotterill's side in the automatic promotion places.
Keith Hill (Rochdale)
Seven points from three unbeaten games was a return that kept Dale in the Play-Off picture and on course for the highest league finish in the club’s history. Hill's squad continue to provide entertaining football to match their decent run of results.
Lee Johnson (Oldham Athletic)
Johnson maintained his side’s focus on the pitch during a hectic month off it. They scored at least two goals in each of their four January games, the highlight being a 3-0 win over Notts County, to re-ignite their promotion push in style.
Karl Robinson (Milton Keynes Dons)
A busy month reaped 11 points from five unbeaten games, an 11-3 goals tally and leadership of Sky Bet League 1. Robinson jiggled his squad around seamlessly throughout, and they peaked during the 5-0 win at the improving Crewe Alexandra.
The winners will be announced on Friday.
