The nominations for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award for August have been announced.

They are as follows:-

Darren Ferguson (Peterborough United)
Ferguson has instilled his side's usual swagger in League 1, particularly on the road with eye-catching performances at Notts County (4-2) and Tranmere Rovers (5-0). Four wins out of five built the platform for another promotion bid.

Kenny Jackett (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
Brought his usual calm assurance to Molineux, inspiring four successive wins to follow an opening day draw at Preston North End. He has players and supporters together once more with his team committed and full of attacking ideas.

Steven Pressley (Coventry City)
With a 10-point deduction imposed on the eve of the season, the Scot preached positive thoughts, creating the division's most entertaining side in August with 16 goals scored and all but two of the 10 points wiped out.

Russell Slade (Leyton Orient)
A perfect August with five wins out of five, three away from home, maintained last season's springtime momentum. Slade has his side playing with style, confidence and attacking flair, with 13 goals scored and just two conceded.

The winners will be announced on Friday live on Sky Sports News.
