U’s Interim Head Coach Joe Dunne has been nominated as the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month for February!
Dunne led United to three victories from a possible four within the calendar month of February, including wins over Chesterfield, Grimsby Town and high flyers Notts County before pushing automatic promotion favourites Accrington Stanley close at the Wham Stadium.
He’s up against…
John Coleman (Accrington Stanley)
Stanley were fifth when February began, jostling for position in the play-off places. A stellar month of performances under Coleman’s wily guidance later, and 16 points for a possible 18 lifted them into second, within three points of leaders Luton.
Mark Cooper (Forest Green Rovers)
Intelligent acquisition during the transfer window was matched by a consequent improvement in results with 10 points gained from four unbeaten February games, which moved his side six points clear of the relegation places.
Steve Evans (Mansfield Town)
A second successive nomination for the departing Stags manager as his side kept up their promotion push. A haul of ten points from five games was built on a solid defence and clinical finishing, notably in the 5-0 triumph over Newport.
