The nominations for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month award for October 2016.Graham Alexander (Scunthorpe United)
Alexander maintained his side’s position on top of the Sky Bet League One table throughout October. Emphatic victories over Chesterfield and Swindon helped them to average two goals per game and garner 13 points from six matches.
Neal Ardley (AFC Wimbledon)
Ardley didn’t panic after a slow start to the season. Four wins and a draw from six games lifted his side into the top half of Sky Bet League One.
Phil Parkinson (Bolton Wanderers)
Parkinson went back to defensive basics to regain his team’s early season momentum. No League One side conceded fewer than Bolton’s three goals in October – the foundation stone for five wins and 15 points from six games.
Mark Venus (Coventry City)
Coventry were winless, bottom of the table and four points adrift of safety when Venus took over on the final day of September. Three wins and a draw from five games later, he has engineered a remarkable turnaround and restored faith.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
