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

They are as follows:-

Nigel Clough (Sheffield United)
A frantically busy February included four wins from five games with FA Cup progress, as United embraced their manager's principles of hard work and solidarity. His team kept four clean sheets and moved up to mid-table.

Steve Evans (Rotherham United)
Evans' attacking principles were on full show as Rotherham continued their free-scoring ways. They hit at least two goals in every February game, including in a victory over Leyton Orient, for a haul of 10 points from four matches.

Simon Grayson (Preston North End)
An emotional month for all concerned at Deepdale, after the passing of club legend Sir Tom Finney, was made a touch easier by performances on the pitch. Grayson instilled consistency into his team as they collected three wins and three draws for 12 points in February.

Kenny Jackett (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
Circumstances limited Jackett's team to three games in the month but he masterminded a pivotal 3-0 victory at promotion rivals Brentford as Wolves picked up maximum points without conceding a goal to move top of Sky Bet League 1.

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