ORIENT manager Russell Slade has been nominated for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month Award for October.
Slade won the prize in August when the O’s won every game in the month and has been nominated again as his side continue to sit top of the table.
The month saw Orient draw one, win three and lose one of their five games in the month, which included particularly impressive results at home to MK Dons which saw them run out 2-1 winners and at Tranmere Rovers where they were 4-0 victors.
The full list of nominees is below…
Kenny Jackett (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
Led his side through an unbeaten month, securing 10 points from four games, and has encouraged attacking play on their travels, winning at Colchester United and Bradford City. Has made Wolves fans believe in their team once again.
Steven Pressley (Coventry City)
Guided his team through another stellar month, collecting 13 points from a possible 15, inflicting a first defeat on leaders Leyton Orient and drawing at Wolves to move his side relentlessly towards the play-off positions.
Russell Slade (Leyton Orient)
The question of how his side would react when they stopped winning every game was answered emphatically. Three wins and a draw from five games kept Orient top, underlining the deep-seated belief he has instilled.
Graham Westley (Stevenage)
Turned around Stevenage’s poor start to the season with three wins in the month, recording their first home victories of the season against Brentford and Crawley Town and making them difficult opponents once again.
The winners will be announced on Friday October 4 2013
The judging panel comprises former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley; Sky Sports Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers’ Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins
