The October nominations for theSky Bet League Two Manager of the Month Award are as follows:
Graham Alexander (Salford City)
The adjustment to life as a Sky Bet EFL club has been gradual for Salford. Through it all, Alexander has maintained a consistency of approach that began to reap proper rewards in October with 10 points gained from five games.
Gary Bowyer (Bradford City)
His calm approach to bedding in summer signings began to pay off as Bradford established themselves in the promotion picture. A nine-point haul from four games included consecutive 2-1 wins against Swindon, Morecambe and Crawley.
John Dempster (Mansfield Town)
After Mansfield narrowly missed out on automatic promotion last season, Dempster learned that expectations come with the manager’s job atThe One Call Stadium. 10 points and 12 goals from five games say that he is coping admirably with it.
Michael Duff (Cheltenham Town)
Postponements limited Cheltenham to just three games, yet Duff ensured that wins over Walsall and Macclesfield maintained his side’s momentum as they took seven points from a possible nine to stay in the top three.
