Rowett nominated for November award
Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett has been nominated for Sky Bet Manager of the Month award for November.
Rowett’s side have won three from five Sky Bet League 2 matches and have managed to keep clean sheets in each of their three victories.
1-0 wins against Mansfield Town, Bristol Rovers and away at Plymouth Argyle have helped Rowett’s side climb to one point off the top of Sky Bet League 2 with 33 points.
James Beattie (Accrington Stanley)
His team managed three wins and a draw from five November games as they moved out of the relegation places, justifying Beattie’s faith in the system and the players he is using in his first managerial role.
Phil Brown (Southend United)
Guided his side to within a minute of five successive wins and still managed a haul of 13 points from a possible 15 as they moved into the automatic promotion places behind a flurry of goals and attacking prowess.
Gary Rowett (Burton Albion)
Refused to panic over consecutive defeats and re-established his side’s promotion charge with a trio of hard-fought wins - featuring a clean sheet on each occasion - against Bristol Rovers, Mansfield Town and Plymouth Argyle.
John Ward (Bristol Rovers)
Has coped admirably with a horrendous injury list. Inspired his side to eight points in a month which featured a fine 1-0 win at leaders Oxford United and defensive stability which saw just two goals conceded in five games.
The winners will be announced on Friday December 6 2013.
The judging panel comprises former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley; Sky Sports Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins
