The nominees for November's Manager of the Month awards have been revealed, with the winners due to be announced on 1:20pm on Thursday on Sky Sports News.
It was a busy month in the Championship, with each of the four managers on the shortlist for the November award all enjoying several impressive results with their respective clubs.
Birmingham City's Alex McLeish was also shortlisted for the award back in August and his team managed to secure a 1-1 draw on Saturday against table-toppers Wolverhampton Wanderers in the West Midlands derby. McLeish's side gained 11 points last month, losing only once, at the start of November.
August's Manager of the Month Mick McCarthy has guided Wolves to five wins out of six games, including three impressive away wins against Cardiff City, Southampton and Sheffield United, ensuring Wolves go into December as league leaders.
Alan Irvine also finds himself nominated for the award after steering Preston North End into the Play-Off positions. Preston lost just one of their November matches and racked up three wins.
The final nominee in the Championship is Neil Warnock. The Crystal Palace manager has won the award on four separate occasions in the past, and after guiding the Eagles to three wins last month, will be hoping to add another Manager of the Month award to his collection.
With little to separate the teams at the top of League 1, November's Manager of the Month award looks set to be a tough one to call, although there is one nominee who won't expect his side to be challenging for promotion come May.
Roberto Di Matteo's Milton Keynes Dons are currently second in the table, scoring 11 goals in their five matches last month, ensuring they go into December with the best goal difference in the league.
Peterborough United's manager Darren Ferguson is once again shortlisted for the League 1 Manager of the Month award. After winning three of their four league matches last month, the Posh have managed to maintain their good form.
It was an extremely busy month for Nigel Pearson as his Leicester City side played eight games in all competitions. Despite this, the Foxes still managed to win four of the five league matches and currently head the pack at the top of the table.
Martin Ling will be disappointed to see November finish after a dramatic turnaround in fortunes for Leyton Orient. The O's did not lose a single match last month and secured wins against Hartlepool United, Crewe Alexandra and Huddersfield Town.
It's also been a busy month in League 2 with the majority of teams switching positions in the league, and the Play-Off spots being occupied by clubs all on the same number of points.
Peter Taylor is nominated for the award for the third time in succession. His Wycombe Wanderers side are flying high at the top of the league and secured three more wins from their four league matches last month.
September's Manager of the Month, Alan Knill, has once again been nominated. Bury kept up their good form last month, including a 4-0 hammering over Gillingham, meaning they head into December level on points with the three other clubs in the Play-Off spots.
Gary Waddock's Aldershot Town continued their climb up the League 2 table in November, winning three of their four league matches, in what proved to be an important month for last season's Conference champions.
The final nominee in League 2 is Rochdale's Keith Hill. The Dale were unbeaten in the league last month, and secured wins over Brentford and Luton Town to keep their bid for promotion on course.
So with all the nominees announced, don't forget to tune into Sky Sports News this Thursday at 1:20pm, and to check here on the official website of The Football League, where we'll have exclusive interviews with all three winners.
