The September nominees for Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month are:
John Coleman (Accrington Stanley)
His name features regularly on these lists because of his ability to bring a new set of players together each season at Accrington. His calm approach helped Stanley to pick up 16 points from seven games and move up to third.
Kevin Nolan (Notts County)
Nolan’s side were almost unstoppable in September, winning six successive games to jump to the top of League Two and collecting 18 points from a possible 21. They did so with the same panache and energy their manager possessed as a player.
Mark Robins (Coventry City)
It has not been easy to manage Coventry in recent seasons, but Robins is a natural fit and understands the club. A haul of 16 points from seven games was based on the foundation of five clean sheets.
Paul Tisdale (Exeter City)
Maintained his side’s early season momentum impressively, sandwiching five wins around their two defeats as Exeter stayed in the automatic promotion places. Five wins from seven games earned him a second successive nomination.
The Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ EFL League expert Don Goodman; EFL Marketing Director Drew Barrand, League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL trader Mikey Mumford.
The winner will be announced on Friday 6th October 2017.
