Paul Tisdale has been shortlisted for League 2 manager of the month for September. A month that started poorly for the Grecians with a home defeat to Mansfield, improved with a draw against strugglers Oxford United, and 2-1 wins away to Cambridge United, Rob Edwards’ Tranmere Rovers and finished the month with a 2-1 win over table toppers Bury.
Other managers that have been shortlisted are:
Gareth Ainsworth (Wycombe Wanderers). Ever unpopular for the style he sets his team up, he’s had some success moving to 2nd in the table after being unbeaten during September.
Phil Brown (Southend United). Four wins in September has guided Southend towards the top of the table.
David Flitcroft (Bury). 10 points from 5 games, only the 2-1 defeat to Exeter blotted his copybook.
Player of the Month for September nominations
Paul Hayes (Wycombe Wanderers), Jack Payne (Southend United), Marc Richards (Northampton Town) and Luke Wilkinson (Luton Town).
Winners will be announced on Sky Sports News on Friday morning.
