9 December 2020

Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman and goalkeeper Toby Savin have been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager and Player of the Month awards for November.

In their summary of the month, Sky Bet reported: "While other teams have had more games, Stanley are simply winning most of the ones they play, amassing 10 points from four fixtures on their return from a COVID-19 enforced lay-off.

"Coleman's team didn't concede a goal all month, either."

Speaking of the Stanley goalkeeper, Sky Bet added: "The 19-year-old Stanley youth product is mature beyond his years, vocal and the organiser of three central defenders in front of him.

"He didn't concede a goal in four games and made crucial saves against Swindon and Lincoln."

Coleman's contenders for the prize are Steve Evans (Gillingham), Kenny Jackett (Portsmouth) and Grant McCann (Hull City), while Savin is up against Callum Camps (Fleetwood Town), Josh Emmanuel (Hull City) and John Marquis (Portsmouth).

The judging panel for the Sky Bet awards comprises former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports' EFL expert Don Goodman; EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.

The winners will be announced on Friday morning.
