Grant McCann says his September Manager of the Month nomination is a credit to the work put in by his players so far this season.
Four wins and a draw during the month saw McCann shortlisted for the award, alongside Kenny Jackett, John Coleman and Lee Bowyer.
He said: “I’m pleased with the nomination but it’s a team effort, it’s nice to be noticed as it shows we’ve been doing well.
“We’re 11 games in and we have 21 points, if we get the win on Saturday then we’ll be on the two points per game mark.
“We’re in a good place, there are going to be ups and downs this season and we need to make sure we stay in and amongst it.”
