TOWN manager Paolo Di Canio has been nominated for the npower League One Manager of the Month Award for January.
The Italian has been shortlisted along with Walsall manager Dean Smith and Yeovil Town’s Gary Johnson. The winner will be announced this Friday, 15th February.
With three wins and two draws, Town underlined their promotion credentials with a series of impressive displays. Three home wins out of three, including convincing victories against Carlisle United and Portsmouth, were supported by away draws against in-form AFC Bournemouth and Leyton Orient. Finishing the month in third place and just six points behind the automatic places, Paolo Di Canio's outfit will only be looking in one direction as the season reaches its conclusion.
The Manager of the Month award is decided by former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley, Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson, League Managers Association Deputy CEO Olaf Dixon and npower Partnerships and Sponsorship Manager Katy Thomas.
