The Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month nominees for December 2020 are:
Derek Adams (Morecambe)
The perennial relegation strugglers are now contenders thanks to Adams, who has instilled belief and fresh ambitions into the Lancashire club. They won five of their six December games, including all four home fixtures.
Chris Beech (Carlisle United)
The upward trend continues at Brunton Park. The Carlisle players are clearly enjoying Beech’s methods with seven different goalscorers contributing to their 11 goals in six games which yielded 13 points as they moved into the top three.
Mark Molesley (Southend United)
When the calendar flicked over to December, Southend had just one win and five points from 14 games. Molesley’s belief didn’t waver as he effected a remarkable transformation with three victories and 11 points in six games.
John Yems (Crawley Town)
Has quietly built a resilience in his side which saw them remain unbeaten in seven December games to collect 13 points. They were behind or pegged back in every game, but rallied each time in scoring a division-leading 14 goals.
All winners will be announced at 6am on Friday 8 January.
