The nominations for the npower League 2 Manager of the Month award for February have been announced.

They are as follows:-

Aidy Boothroyd (Northampton Town)
The ex-Watford manager enjoyed a strong February, guiding his Northampton Town outfit to four wins, a draw and a solitary loss in their six league fixtures. The Cobblers' 1-0 victory against Bristol Rovers to finish the month was their seventh home win in a row and this home form could be crucial in ensuring they are looking at promotion come May.

Steve Evans (Rotherham United)
Steve Evans' side supplemented their Play-Off credentials in February, only dropping points in a loss to Burton Albion and in a draw against York City. The pre-season favourites for promotion will be keen to ensure that they maintain this form as the promotion race reaches its dramatic conclusion.

Gary Rowett (Burton Albion)
Four wins and a draw in five league games ensured that Burton Albion maintained a spot in the automatic promotion positions. As well as the great form, Gary Rowett has Burton Albion playing free-scoring football, too. The Brewers managed 16 goals in their five February fixtures, sending a clear message to their rivals as the promotion race heats up.

The winners will be announced on Friday live on Sky Sports News, from 9am.
