Nolan nominated for Manager of the Month

5 December 2017

Kevin Nolan has been nominated for November's Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award.

The Notts boss, who won the award for September, guided the Magpies to an unbeaten month in the league as they maintained their impressive start to the season and kept pace with Luton Town at the top of the division.

A point at Stevenage from a 1-1 draw was backed up with a 3-1 home win over Cheltenham before another away trip garnered another point as Notts drew 1-1 at Yeovil.

The month ended in dramatic fashion as Ryan Yates' goal in the third minute of injury time secured a 2-1 win over Colchester to keep Notts level on points with Luton.

The winner will be announced on Friday morning.

The other nominees for the award are:

Steve Evans - Mansfield Town

The veteran manager led the Stags to an unbeaten month, taking 10 points from a possible 12.

Two superb displays on the road underpinned a successful couple of weeks with a 1-0 win at Coventry City thanks to Alex MacDonald's superb goal followed up by a 4-0 romp at Port Vale which saw defender Zander Diamond strike twice.

A 1-0 victory against Stevenage was secured by Kane Hemmings and a 2-2 draw with Chesterfield propelled them into the play-off places to end November.

Nathan Jones - Luton Town

The league leaders were rampant in November, scoring 14 goals in their four league outings.

Their 7-0 win at home to Cambridge was the third time they had scored seven goals or more in a league game this season.

Four points from away trips to Cheltenham and Crewe were supplemented by a 3-0 home win against Carlisle to keep the Hatters at the summit heading into December.

Jack Lester - Chesterfield

Lester has had an immediate impact at the Proact Stadium, taking eight points from four games which almost doubled the Spireites' tally for the season so far to claw back the gap with those just above the relegation zone.

Only a stoppage-time penalty prevented them from taking three points at Swindon before successive home wins against Exeter and Forest Green generated some momentum, which they used to hold local rivals Mansfield to a 2-2 draw at the One Call Stadium.
