Port Vale boss Micky Adams is on the shortlist to become League Two manager of the month for October.
It comes after his side extended their unbeaten run to an impressive seven games. Victories over Shrewsbury Town and Crewe coupled with draws against table-toppers Bournemouth, third placed Dagenham & Redbridge and Cheltenham have pushed Vale up to 13th place in League Two. Adams’ men also saw off Stockport County in the Johnstone Paint Trophy.
The run comes after Adams controversially placed the whole squad on the transfer list, following Vale’s 3-1 defeat at Notts County in late September.
He would be the first Vale boss to win the award since Brian Horton was handed the gong back in March 2001. The three other candidates in the League Two category are Chesterfield’s John Sheridan, Rochdale’s Keith Hill, and former Stoke striker and current Burton manager Paul Peschisolido.
The winner will be announced on Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday show this weekend.
