Pair nominated for League 1 awards

Ainsworth and Jacobson amongst the contenders.

11 December 2019

Gareth Ainsworth and Joe Jacobson have been nominated for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager and Player of the Month awards for November.

In their summary of the month, Sky Bet reported: "Masterminding an early season surge into contention is one thing, sustaining it to carve out a five-point lead at the top entering December is quite another. Ainsworth’s side picked up 10 points from four games without conceding a goal."

And speaking of Jacobson, they added: "The left-back made a stunning impact in November. A pivotal member of a defence which recorded four clean sheets in as many games, Wycombe’s four goals also came through him with two penalties and two pinpoint free-kick assists."

Ainsworth's contenders for the prize are Graham Coughlan (Bristol Rovers), Kenny Jackett (Portsmouth) and Paul Warne (Rotherham), while Jacobson is up against Armand Gnanduillet (Blackpool), Daryl Murphy (Bolton) and Matty Taylor (Oxford).

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 are announced on Friday morning.
