Gareth nominated for Manager of the Month prize

Boss up against Ryan Lowe, Karl Robinson and Paul Warne.

10 November 2021

Gareth Ainsworth has been shortlisted for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award for October.

The Chairboys chief guided his side to 14 points from a possible 18 in an unbeaten month, which included three home wins as well as a victory on the road at Doncaster, and draws at Rotherham and Fleetwood.

He's up against Plymouth boss Ryan Lowe, Oxford manager Karl Robinson, and Paul Warne of Rotherham, with the winner to be announced on Friday morning.

The panel's shortlist reads:

Gareth Ainsworth (Wycombe Wanderers)
Four wins and two draws in an unbeaten month for Ainsworth’s side as he charted his side’s serene progress. The confidence his players have in his methods was borne out by injury-time winners against Morecambe and Crewe.

Ryan Lowe (Plymouth Argyle)
Lowe has underlined to his players the importance of turning Devon into a fortress this season. A perfect three wins from three at Home Park were part of a 14-point haul from six unbeaten matches which took Argyle to the summit of League One.

Karl Robinson (Oxford United)
After a slow start, Oxford were forced to play catch-up to make the play-offs last season. Robinson has ensured they have hit their stride earlier this time around with four wins from five October games lifting them into the top six.

Paul Warne (Rotherham United)
Warne’s men made light work of a daunting-looking fixture list, collecting 13 points from five unbeaten games with a 14-2 goal differential. Portsmouth were beaten 4-1 and Sunderland 5-1 as their challenge gathered momentum.
