The February nominations for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month Award are:
Derek Adams (Plymouth Argyle)
What began as a climb away from the foot of the table in December has blossomed into a full-on tilt at promotion. He has maintained his side’s focus superbly, guiding them to five wins out of five with Blackburn and Shrewsbury among their victims.
Tony Mowbray (Blackburn Rovers)
A busy month in which his entertaining side opened up a four-point lead at the top of League One with four victories and a draw from their six matches.
Chris Powell (Southend United)
Made an instant and positive impact at Roots Hall in his first month in the job. Ten points from a possible 12, only two goals conceded and his new team have been unleashed going forward as they climbed into mid-table.
Paul Warne (Rotherham United)
December’s winner was at it again in February as his registered a perfect month winning all five matches. Most impressive of all, he has had to re-shape his side’s style following the loss of on-loan goal machine Kieffer Moore.
The winner will be announced on Friday 9th March.
The 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.
