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

Mark Cooper (Swindon Town)
As impressive as the haul of 10 points from 12 was the free-flowing football which recorded a stirring 5-2 win over Sheffield United and a 3-0 victory at Barnsley. Cooper has his players believing in style with substance.

Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)
Another stellar month in charge at Ashton Gate. Four wins and a draw saw his fluent City team move five points clear, scoring three goals on four occasions and two once as they maintained their attacking surge.

Keith Hill (Rochdale)
Hill has harnessed the momentum gained from last season’s promotion campaign beautifully. Four wins in five games included handsome 4-0 victories against Crawley Town and Walsall as ‘Dale surged into the Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off positions.

Lee Johnson (Oldham Athletic)
Two wins and three draws in September lifted Oldham into the top half of the table and justified Johnson’s faith in his side. Superbly organised, three clean sheets included a 1-0 win over previously unbeaten Fleetwood Town.
