The February nominations for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month Award are:
Joey Barton (Fleetwood Town)
What seemed a difficult February schedule with games against four promotion rivals belied Barton’s ability to lead his side to wins over Wycombe, Peterborough and Portsmouth as they picked up 16 points from six unbeaten games.
Kenny Jackett (Portsmouth)
Keeping his squad fresh despite cup commitments in two competitions, Jackett guided his side to five wins from seven League One fixtures and a 12-3 goal differential as they closed in on the automatic promotion places.
Mark Robins (Coventry City)
Extending an unbeaten streak into a third month is not easy for the manager of any team, but try doing it when you play your homes games in another city. Robins’ players trust him implicitly and collected 16 points from six matches.
Karl Robinson (Oxford United)
Robinson was forced to navigate his team through an eight-game league schedule without the departed Tariqe Fosu and Shandon Baptiste. Oxford barely skipped a beat, maintaining their promotion charge with a 16-point haul.
