The October nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month Award are:

Gary Caldwell (Wigan Athletic)
Has taken to football management with apparent ease. He has recruited wisely and blended old and new faces into a winning side which collected 12 points from six unbeaten games, including an emphatic 5-0 win over Colchester United.

Phil Parkinson (Bradford City)
The hallmark of his four years in charge at Bradford has been a refusal to panic during the occasional poor spells. Sticking to his principles allowed him to overcome a slow start to gain 11 points from five unbeaten games in the month.

Mark Robins (Scunthorpe United)
Only an unlucky defeat at leaders Gillingham prevented him from guiding Scunthorpe through a perfect month. Five wins from six games with a 13-5 goal differential demonstrated his ability to balance attacking play with pragmatism.

Dean Saunders (Chesterfield)
Bringing his ideas and introducing his methods into a settled environment was not an easy task, but his new-look Chesterfield side found their feet in October, winning four of their six games. The highlight was a 2-1 win at leaders Walsall.

Winners will be announced on Friday November 6th 2015.
