WANDERERS boss Ian Evatt has been nominated for the SkyBet League One Manager of the Month for September.

Unbeaten in three league games during the judging period, Evatt and Bolton pushed up the table into the top six and conceded just one goal in the process.

Victories against Charlton Athletic and Peterborough United at home and an away win at MK Dons earned nine points.

Other nominees are Plymouth’s Steven Schumacher, Barnsley’s Michael Duff and Steve Cotterill of Shrewsbury Town.

The winner of the September award will be announced on Friday morning, with the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprising former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
