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

They are as follows:-

Steve Cotterill (Bristol City)
Cotterill led his side out of the bottom four in convincing fashion behind an avalanche of goals — 15 in seven matches — culminating in the 5-0 thumping of Port Vale. He has bred confidence among his players and restored the faith of the fans.

Steve Evans (Rotherham United)
Evans has maintained his team's unbeaten record since the opening day of 2014. His attacking principles were on show in the 3-0 win over promotion rivals Brentford as the team achieved a haul of 17 points from seven games and a 15-2 goal count during the month.

Kenny Jackett (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
It was a busy, free-scoring month for Wolves in which Jackett rotated his side expertly to secure 19 points from eight games, scoring 18 goals in the process. The belief he has instilled moved Wolves six points clear at the top of Sky Bet League 1.

Mark Warburton (Brentford)
Warburton's shrewd tactics in the pivotal 1-0 win away to London rivals Leyton Orient tipped the balance towards his side in the hunt for automatic promotion. Five clean sheets contributed to a haul of 14 points from seven games.

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