January MotM Nomination - Nielsen (MK Dons)
The January nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month Award are:
Graham Alexander (Scunthorpe United)
A difficult December turned into a resurgent and entertaining January. Guided his team to a 10-point haul from four unbeaten games, including 3-2 wins over Bury and Port Vale, as they moved back to the top of League One.
Paul Hurst (Shrewsbury Town)
Built strong defensive foundations since arriving in late October. Reduced a torrent of goals against to a trickle in January. Five games brought eight points and only three goals conceded as Shrewsbury moved out of the relegation zone.
Robbie Nielsen (MK Dons)
Since arriving from Hearts he has lifted the intensity in training. The improvement in fitness allowed him to play the high pressing style he favours in January to gain seven points from three games and back-to-back 5-3 and 4-0 wins.
Uwe Rosler (Fleetwood Town)
A 2-0 victory at leaders and promotion rivals Sheffield United was the highpoint of a month which didn`t have any lows for Rosler`s side. As impressive as their play is the consistency he has inspired which brought 13 points from five games.
Winners will be announced on Friday 10th February 2017.
