The nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month award for March.Darrell Clarke (Bristol Rovers)
It was an almost perfect month for Clarke and his side. He placed the emphasis on attack and entertainment to lead Rovers to six wins and 19 goals from seven matches, jumping from 10th place to within three points of the automatic promotion positions.
Craig Hignett (Hartlepool United)
After waiting patiently for his first Football League managerial role, Hignett has taken to it smoothly, guiding Pools away from the relegation zone in style. Seven games yielded 14 points and made a repeat of last year’s late scramble unlikely.
Paul Tisdale (Exeter City)
Tisdale reversed his side’s falling fortunes by guiding them through March unbeaten. A haul of 12 points from six games was made even more special by their 100 per cent record on the road, with wins at Cambridge United, Notts County and Crawley Town.
Darren Way (Yeovil Town)
This is Way’s second nomination in four months of being a manager for maintaining the momentum that has pulled Yeovil clear of the relegation places. His side earned 10 points from five games and kept four clean sheets in the process.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
