The August nominations for the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month Award are:

Jim Bentley (Morecambe)
Used the seaside sunshine to prepare his side well for the new season. Four wins from five games sent them top of League Two with style and substance. Both were plentiful in the comeback 3-2 win at Lancastrian rivals Accrington.

Nathan Jones (Luton Town)
Convincing 3-0 away victories at Plymouth and Cambridge helped Jones` men to 10 points from five games and sent them second in the table. After taking over in January, he has now established himself as a young manager of promise.

John McGreal (Colchester United)
New to his post, his first month in charge proved a productive one with three wins and a draw from five games. Has quickly instilled solidity at the back with only five league goals conceded by a defence which let in 99 last season.

Adam Murray (Mansfield Town)
Picked up where he left off last season and reinforced his growing managerial reputation by guiding Mansfield to a 10-point haul from their opening five fixtures, which included away victories at Newport and Leyton Orient.

Winners will be announced on Friday 9th September 2016.
