Oxford United Manager Karl Robinson has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month for November
The nominations, with the judges’ comments are:
Karl Robinson (Oxford United)
At first glance, Oxford’s haul of five points from three games doesn’t stand out, but then consider that Robinson inspired a side missing seven players through Covid and six more through injury to beat Fleetwood and draw with leaders Rotherham.
Danny Cowley (Portsmouth)
Patience can be the greatest managerial virtue, as Cowley proved when his side were sliding down the League One table in October. His reward for staying true to his players was an unbeaten month and 13 points from five games.
Darren Moore (Sheffield Wednesday)
Too many draws and not enough goals had characterised Wednesday’s start to the season. Moore addressed both issues in November when his side matched 11 points and a League One-high 11 goals from five unbeaten games.
Leam Richardson (Wigan Athletic)
Sometimes management is about more than results on the pitch, it is about caring for your players. Richardson acted instantly to resuscitate Charlie Wyke when the striker collapsed in training. He also guided Wigan to seven points from three games.
The Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprises former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan, and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
The winner will be announced on Friday morning
