A four nominee shortlist has been announced for League Two’s Manager of the Month Award.
Northampton’s Chris Wilder, Oxford’s Michael Appleton, Newport’s John Sheridan, and Accrington Stanley’s John Coleman make the list with the winner set to be revealed on Friday.
Wilder guided the team through a faultless November with four wins out of four and a takeover that rescued the club from liquidation.
Michael Appleton’s side caught up with long-standing leaders Plymouth to go 1st in League Two with three clean sheets helping them to 10 points from a possible 12.
It was fellow candidate John Sheridan who prevented Oxford from recording a 100% success rate in November in their 1-1 draw, as the Exiles climbed clear of the relegation zone by remaining unbeaten during November.
John Coleman’s Accrington were pin-point in from of goal scoring 10 goals in three games including the 5-1 drubbing of York City to keep them ahead in the hunt for at least a play-off finish. Coleman won the League Two award in September and has Stanley playing with a consistent never say die attitude.
