Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month nominations - October

4 November 2015

The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award for October.

Gary Caldwell (Wigan Athletic)

Caldwell has taken to football management with apparent ease. He has recruited wisely and blended old and new faces into a winning side which collected 12 points from six unbeaten games, including an emphatic 5-0 win over Colchester United.

Phil Parkinson (Bradford City)

The hallmark of Parkinson's four years in charge at Bradford has been a refusal to panic during the occasional poor spells. Sticking to his principles allowed him to overcome a slow start to gain 11 points from five unbeaten games in the month.

Mark Robins (Scunthorpe United)

Only an unlucky defeat at leaders Gillingham prevented Robins from guiding Scunthorpe through a perfect month. Five wins from six games with a 13-5 goal differential demonstrated his ability to balance attacking play with pragmatism.

Dean Saunders (Chesterfield)

Bringing his ideas and introducing his methods into a settled environment was not an easy task, but Saunders' new-look Chesterfield side found their feet in October, winning four of their six games. The highlight was a 2-1 win at leaders Walsall.

The winner will be announced on Friday.
