The nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award for August 2016.Jim Bentley (Morecambe)
Four wins from five games sent Jim Bentley's Morecambe to the top of Sky Bet League Two in August with style and substance. Both were plentiful in the comeback 3-2 win at Lancashire rivals Accrington Stanley.
Nathan Jones (Luton Town)
Convincing 3-0 away victories at Plymouth Argyle and Cambridge United helped Jones’ men to 10 points from five games and sent them second in the table. After taking over in January, Jones has now established himself as a young manager of promise.
John McGreal (Colchester United)
New to his post, McGreal's first month in charge proved a productive one with three wins and a draw from five games. He has quickly instilled solidity at the back with only five league goals conceded by a defence which let in 99 last season.
Adam Murray (Mansfield Town)
Murray and his men picked up from where they left off last season and the manager reinforced his growing reputation by guiding Mansfield to a 10-point haul from their opening five fixtures, which included away victories at Newport County and Leyton Orient.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
