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

Nigel Adkins (Sheffield United)
Consistency has been a problem for his side this season, something he managed to rectify in December. United gained nine points from nine and only conceded one goal as they moved back into the promotion picture.

Justin Edinburgh (Gillingham)
His ability to inspire his team to respond to a setback was in evidence again. Defeat at the beginning of the month was instantly forgotten with wins over Millwall, Swindon Town and Colchester United to maintain their promotion hopes.

Lee Johnson (Barnsley)
Proved that the Barnsley board is full of wise men by staying true to his footballing principles. His belief in his players never wavered during an awful run of autumn results. His reward was six points from a possible nine.

Sean O’Driscoll (Walsall)
Made the transition from the Dean Smith era appear seamless by leading his new side to three straight victories. Encourages his players to think for themselves on the pitch, which they did to regain top spot in League 1.

Winners will be announced on Friday 8th January 2016.
