The December nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month Award are:
Ryan Lowe (Plymouth Argyle)
Argyle ended the year with three successive league victories to move into the Play-Off positions with games in hand. A nine-point haul from four fixtures suggests he has found the blend to match his Bury side from last season.
John McGreal (Colchester United)
Colchester matched goals for points in December with 11 of each from five unbeaten games as they climbed into the play-off places. McGreal finally seems to have instilled a winning consistency in his talented side of youngsters.
Matt Taylor (Exeter City)
As impressive as the attacking intent of his team is their ability to rescue points from unpromising positions. They did it again, recovering from 3-0 down to draw with Walsall and collect 11 points from five unbeaten games.
Richie Wellens (Swindon Town)
Backed by the goals of Eoin Doyle, Wellens’ side continued to march forward at the head of League Two with 10 points from five games. Grimsby Town, Oldham Athletic and Cambridge United were despatched by a combined 9-0 aggregate.
