Sky Bet League Two: Manager and Player of the Month nominees

2 May 2023

The April nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month Award are:

Dave Challinor (Stockport County)

A third nomination this season for Challinor whose consistent side played just six games in April but went unbeaten for a second straight month, collecting 14 points with a 12-3 goals differential as they closed in on the top three.

Steve Evans (Stevenage)

Steering your side over the automatic promotion line is no easy task in an eight-game month with some awkward fixtures, but Evans did exactly that. Stevenage lost just once as they gained 15 points to seal their passage to League One. 

Ben Garner (Colchester United)

Any relegation fears in Essex were dispelled as Garner smoothly guided Colchester to safety with 12 points from seven games. Most impressively of all, he has tightened up a defence which conceded a measly three goals all month.

Richie Wellens (Leyton Orient)

His well-drilled team entered April as League Two leaders, but with four promotion rivals to face. Carlisle, Salford and Mansfield were all swept away as Orient earned 16 points from eight games and clinched the League Two title.

The April nominations for the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month Award are:

Luke Armstrong (Harrogate Town) - striker

No-one typified Harrogate’s tenacity and determination better than the hard-working Armstrong who led the line on his own and contributed three goals and three assists. His late winner at Newport preserved his side’s EFL status.

Omar Bogle (Newport County) - striker

Bogle won’t want the season to end having tapped into a rich vein of form with six goals and two assists in eight matches, including braces against Northampton and Harrogate. A predator in the box, his finishing was assured and precise.

Andy Cook (Bradford City) - striker

Whenever Bradford needed a goal to bolster their promotion push, Cook answered the call just as he has all season, with razor sharp instincts, trademark headers and a solo effort against Sutton among his five goals and two assists.

Chris Hussey (Stockport County) – central defender

Thrust into emergency use as a central defender in two-and-a-half games, a role he has never played before, and then one as a wing-back, Hussey helped preserve two clean sheets and served up four assists with his left foot delivery.
