Rotherham United boss Steve Evans has been rewarded for an undefeated November, by being nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month award.

Evans led his Millers to five wins in total with three coming in the league, and two draws from seven games, scoring 17 goals in the process.

The nominees are: 

Mark Cooper (Swindon Town)
His policy to encourage his side to outscore their opponents saw his entertaining Swindon hit 11 goals in five games while picking up 10 points in November. The highlight was a thrilling 5-2 win over Port Vale.

Steve Evans (Rotherham United)
A dominant November as Rotherham’s promotion campaign gathered momentum. Their three victories in an unbeaten month were all gained by three-goal margins, against Stevenage, Coventry City and Gillingham.

Simon Grayson (Preston North End)
Five more unbeaten games took Preston’s current league run to eight and established them in the Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off places. The highlight was a sound team performance in a 1-0 triumph at leaders Leyton Orient.

Uwe Rosler (Brentford)
A stellar month in which his side picked up 13 points from a possible 15, keeping four clean sheets in the process. Style and substance saw them thump Crewe Alexandra 5-0 and come from behind to beat Peterborough United 3-2.
