League 1 MOTM August Nomination: Paul Cook
The August nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month Award are:
Graham Alexander (Fleetwood Town)
Oversaw a wonderful start to Fleetwood's first season in Sky Bet League 1. Cannily based his side's approach on maintaining discipline at the back with just two goals conceded in five games which brought 11 points.
Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)
Set the tone for a convincing August by leading his side to an opening day 2-1 victory at Sheffield United. Three wins and two draws from five games have his players and the club's supporters believing in a promotion push.
Darren Ferguson (Peterborough United)
Masterminded a flying start with four wins out of five to make light of the departure of last season's leading scorer Britt Assombalonga. Fitted new boy Kyle Vassell seamlessly into the Posh attacking way to head Sky Bet League 1.
Paul Cook (Chesterfield)
Cook brought his side into the division and smoothed the transition in spite of some awkward fixtures. Inspired an opening day 2-1 success at Leyton Orient then went on to collect three wins and a draw.
