The November nominations for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month Award are...
John Coleman (Accrington Stanley)
While other teams have had more games, Stanley are simply winning most of the ones they play, amassing 10 points from four fixtures on their return from a Covid-19 enforced lay-off. Coleman’s team didn’t concede a goal all month, either.
Steve Evans (Gillingham)
The growing maturity of his young side continued with victories over Crewe and Wimbledon in a seven-point haul from three games. Most impressive of all is that they had lost their previous five league games without scoring.
Kenny Jackett (Portsmouth)
Pompey continued their climb into the play-off positions in four unbeaten games as they collected 10 goals and eight points in the process. Jackett’s man-management skills were seen in the return to form of Ronan Curtis and John Marquis.
Grant McCann (Hull City)
With his side playing more cup games than league fixtures in November, it would have been easy for McCann and his players to lose focus on the greater prize. They didn’t, winning all three league fixtures against Burton, MK Dons and Ipswich to go top.
The November nominations for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month Award are...
Callum Camps (Fleetwood Town) - midfielder
Four goals, and what goals, from the marauding midfielder. Bursting forward at every turn, even a swerving free-kick and a dreamy lob against Bristol Rovers would have been upstaged had a stunning volley against Sunderland not hit the bar
Josh Emmanuel (Hull City) – full-back
No player typifies the dynamism of Hull’s season so far more than Emmanuel whose energy and drive from right-back was typified by his run and assist at MK Dons. Part of a defence which conceded just one goal in the month
John Marquis (Portsmouth) - striker
The swagger returned in November with four goals and an assist for a mobile forward always ready to play in teammates. His month began with a neat finish and a smart header in the 3-1 win at Lincoln and grew from there.
Toby Savin (Accrington Stanley) - goalkeeper
The 20-year-old Stanley youth product is mature beyond his years, vocal and the organiser of three central defenders in front of him. He didn’t concede a goal in four games and made crucial saves against Swindon and Lincoln.
