The nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award for October 2016.Derek Adams (Plymouth Argyle)
A second successive monthly nomination for the Scot whose side again collected 13 points from a possible 15 to establish a four-point lead at the top. Argyle did it in style, too, scoring at least two goals in every game.
Keith Curle (Carlisle United)
Not content with equalling a club record for unbeaten games to start the season, Curle inspired his side to claim sole possession of Carlisle history with five wins from five and 13 goals in a perfect month as they moved into second place.
Gary Johnson (Cheltenham Town)
Johnson's experience told him not to fret when Cheltenham struggled on their return to the Sky Bet EFL. He guided his team through five unbeaten games in October, collecting nine points to move out of the relegation places.
Darren Way (Yeovil Town)
Building on last season’s impressive managerial debut was never going to be easy. Way’s patience and belief in his methods was rewarded with 10 points from five games, including successive 1-0 victories over Wycombe, Newport and Crewe.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
