The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award for January.Gary Caldwell (Wigan Athletic)
A busy month for Caldwell’s men with 12 points gained from six unbeaten matches. Their attacking threat at the DW Stadium was evident as they scored three goals in each of their four home games to move up to fourth.
Nigel Clough (Burton Albion)
Taking over a successful side can be tricky, returning to a former club even more so. Clough has cleverly made the transition without disturbing the balance at Burton. Nine points from five games kept Albion on course for automatic promotion.
Neil Harris (Millwall)
Having carefully built the foundations and player trust during his previous 10 months at The Den, he moved Millwall into the Play-Off picture in January by overseeing three victories and a draw in five matches.
Lee Johnson (Barnsley)
Continued the momentum his side built up in December by leading them to a perfect record of five wins from five with a 13-2 goal differential. Has his team playing fluent passing football to which they have added a steely edge.
