The December nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award are:
Mark Cooper (Forest Green Rovers)
His side maintained their play-off place despite playing three of their four completed matches away from home. Collecting 10 points and scoring nine goals, they continue to show progress in their second season of EFL football.
David Flitcroft (Mansfield Town)
Maintained his side’s focus as well as their surge up the League Two table. The Stags collected 10 points from four unbeaten games in December, conceding just two goals in the process to move into the play-off positions.
Michael Jolley (Grimsby Town)
Proving himself a young manager to watch. On 14 December, Grimsby stood six points above the relegation zone. After winning at Exeter to make it 12 points from a possible 15 in the month, they were six points off the play-offs.
Danny Cowley (Lincoln City)
Another month, another nomination for a manager whose team maintained its consistency of both performances and results with four wins from five games. Their ability to score early goals was key to wins over Stevenage, Morecambe and Newport.
All winners will be announced on Friday 11 January 2018.
