League 2 MOTM August Nomination: Gary Rowett

League 2 MOTM August Nomination: Gary Rowett

The August nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month Award are:

Jim Bentley (Morecambe)
Inspired the players around him to four straight win to start the campaign. The team spirit he engendered was shown in abundance in the 3-2 comeback win over Newport County.

Micky Mellon (Shrewsbury Town)
Made an immediate impact in Shropshire, banishing memories of relegation with a surge of attacking play that collected 11 points with 11 goals from five unbeaten matches to become the division's leading scorers.

Gary Rowett (Burton Albion)
No sign of any Play-Off Final hangover, Rowett is, filling his players with energy and determination, and they picked up 13 points from 15 to sit top of Sky Bet League 2, conceding just three goals.

Mark Yates (Cheltenham Town)
A near perfect month as his side established itself as promotion contenders. Away wins at Bury and Tranmere Rovers were the cornerstones of a 13-point haul from five matches, which included three clean sheets.
