The October nominations for the Sky Bet League OneManager of the Month Award are:
Gareth Ainsworth (Wycombe Wanderers)
Four wins and two draws in an unbeaten month for Ainsworth’s side as he charted his side’s serene progress. The confidence his players have in his methods was borne out by injury-time winners against Morecambe and Crewe.
Ryan Lowe (Plymouth Argyle)
Lowe has underlined to his players the importance of turning Devon into a fortress this season. A perfect three wins from three at Home Park were part of a 14-point haul from six unbeaten matches which took Argyle to the summit of League One.
Karl Robinson (Oxford United)
After a slow start, Oxford were forced to play catch-up to make the play-offs last season. Robinson has ensured they have hit their stride earlier this time around with four wins from five October games lifting them into the top six.
Paul Warne (Rotherham United)
Warne’s men made light work of a daunting-looking fixture list, collecting 13 points from five unbeaten games with a 14-2 goal differential. Portsmouth were beaten 4-1 and Sunderland 5-1 as their challenge gathered momentum.
