The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award for February.Nigel Clough (Sheffield United)
Clough integrated new signing Matt Done into his side seamlessly as United collected 14 points from seven games, including a fine 3-1 win at leaders Bristol City. The fans were happy, too, as the attacking play he preaches brought 14 goals.
Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)
Juggling his squad while maintaining City’s place at the top was Cotterill’s biggest challenge in a month in which City fitted in eight league fixtures over just 28 days. Five wins and 16 points say that he met that challenge successfully.
Simon Grayson (Preston North End)
A perfect month for North End, who reaffirmed their promotion credentials with a maximum 15 points, 10 goals scored and none conceded - a tribute to Grayson’s man-management skills and level-headedness following an inconsistent spell.
Rob Page (Port Vale)
Page has made an understated impact at Vale Park since taking over, with February his most impressive month so far. Ten points from five games and the division’s second tightest defence in that period lifted Vale into the promotion picture.
The winners will be announced on Friday.
