After an impressive November where the Reds claimed all six points from their two games against Colchester United and Swindon Town, the boss has been nominated for Sky Bet League Two's Manager of the Month award.
Lee Bell (Crewe Alexandra)
After stepping up from assistant to interim manager, Bell brought a calmness and clarity as he guided Crewe to successive 1-0 victories over Colchester and Swindon, arresting a seven-game winless run in League Two.
Jon Brady (Northampton Town)
Brady’s side only had two League Two fixtures in November – both away from home – but by winning them, in particular their convincing 3-1 triumph at promotion rivals Bradford, they consolidated their position in the play-off positions.
Johnnie Jackson (Wimbledon)
Having spent so many years at Charlton, it has taken Jackson a while to fully grasp the Wimbledon way, but three unbeaten games, including a win over leaders Orient, seven points and no goals conceded were positive signs of progress.
Paul Simpson (Carlisle United)
Simpson’s side moved back into the play-off positions thanks to an unbeaten month which yielded five points and seven goals, all of which came away from home as his team exhibited the danger they offer on the counter-attack.
ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY 9 DECEMBER 2022
The Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprises former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
