The March nominations for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month Award are:
Steve Cotterill (Shrewsbury Town)
February was the month in which Shrewsbury drew their reward for the creative football Cotterill has instilled. Their 11-point haul from six games included a 5-0 drubbing of Morecambe and a stunning 3-0 win at leaders Rotherham.
Kieran McKenna (Ipswich Town)
Such has been McKenna’s impact at Portman Road that Ipswich fans are wishing he had been appointed sooner. Building on stability at the back, his side earned 11 points from five unbeaten games, conceding just a single goal.
Leam Richardson (Wigan Athletic)
Due to their cup commitments, Wigan have been playing a hectic game of catch-up in League One in 2022. You wouldn’t know it from their consistency. Richardson continues to manage his squad superbly with 13 points from five unbeaten games.
Steven Schumacher (Plymouth Argyle)
Any Argyle fans fearing the worst when Ryan Lowe departed in December have been swiftly comforted by Schumacher’s calmness and tactical acumen. Six wins from seven games, conceding just one goal, lifted his side into fourth.
