Shez Nominated

JOHN Sheridan has been nominated for Sky Bet League Manager of the Month for February.

Shez's Argyle side played five games in the month, starting with a 1-1 draw at home to Mansfield. The sole loss in February was a 0-4 reverse at home to York City, but three away victories - at Northampton, Dagenham and Fleetwood - have caught the eye of the Sky Bet judging panel.

The judges, which include former Wimbledon manager Dave Bassett and ex-West Brom and Sunderland marksman Don Goodman, will have to decide from a list which as well as John includes York boss Nigel Worthington, Bury gaffer Dave Flitcroft and Chris Wilder, after his first full month as Northampton manager.

The winner of the award will be annouced on Friday.

John was the recipient of the Manager of the Month award for March 2013, after Argyle earned 13 points from six games in the month - a haul which would ultimately lead them to safety. Jason Banton was also given the Player of the Month award at that time.
