Manager Steven Schumacher and goalkeeper Michael Cooper have received nominations for EFL Sky Bet League One awards for October.

Schumacher is up for Manager of the Month, an award he won for September. Cooper is in the running for Player of the Month, and will be looking to follow on from Morgan Whittaker, who won the award last month.

Argyle played seven league games in a busy October, and came away with six wins and a draw to solidify their position on the top of the League One table.

Cooper kept two clean sheets in the month, seemingly making brilliant saves in every game, but particularly shining in wins over Wycombe Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday.

Cooper will face competition for his award from Burton Albion forward Victor Adeboyejo, who scored five times during the month; Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannon, who made two assists and scored two spectacular goals; and Aaron Collins of Bristol Rovers, who scored an equaliser in a 2-2 draw against Argyle among three October strikes.

The four bosses on the Manager of the Month shortlist are those from the top four sides in the division. Joining Schumacher are Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna, who led the Tractor Boys to 16 points from the seven October games; Darren Moore, manager of Sheffield Wednesday, whose only loss in the month was to Argyle; and Grant McCann of Peterborough United, who steered the Posh to 16 October points having had a dip in form in September.

The winners will be announced early on Friday morning.
