NIGEL Clough has been nominated for Sky Bet League One manager of the month (January).
Gary Caldwell (Wigan Athletic)
A busy month for Caldwell’s men with 12 points gained from six unbeaten matches. Their attacking threat at the DW Stadium was evident as they scored three goals in each of their four home games to move up to fourth.
Nigel Clough (Burton Albion)
Taking over a successful side can be tricky, returning to a former club even more so. Clough has cleverly made the transition without disturbing the balance at Burton. Nine points from five games kept Albion on course for automatic promotion.
Neil Harris (Millwall)
Having carefully built the foundations and player trust during his previous 10 months at The Den, he moved Millwall into the Play-Off picture in January by overseeing three victories and a draw in five matches.
Lee Johnson (Barnsley)
Continued the momentum his side built up in December by leading them to a perfect record of five wins from five with a 13-2 goal differential. Has his team playing fluent passing football to which they have added a steely edge.
ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY 5 FEBRUARY 2016
The judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery
