NEWS: Mark Robins nominated for November Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month Award

8 December 2022

Coventry City's Mark Robins has been nominated for the November Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month Award.

The Sky Blues won four out of four Sky Bet Championship games during the month, keeping four clean sheets in the process.

The month began with a 1-0 home win over high-flying Blackburn Rovers, before the same scoreline brought three points on the road at Watford on 5th November.

A midweek 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic was followed up by a 2-0 home victory against QPR to round off the month.

All nominations are shown below, with the EFL's description of each candidate:

Michael Carrick (Middlesbrough)

Carrick seemingly hesitated over taking the Boro job because he wasn’t sure he was ready. Both the tactical and psychological transformations on Teesside with 10 points gained in four games suggest he needn’t have worried.

Carlos Corberan (West Bromwich Albion)

Three wins and three clean sheets from three games for the rejuvenated Baggies. So steadying has been Corberan’s hand since taking over at The Hawthorns, there is now more talk of a promotion push than a relegation struggle.

Paul Heckingbottom (Sheffield United)

Three wins from four games ensured his team went into the World Cup break in the top two. Just as important is the belief and afterglow absorbed from a blistering second-half dismantling of leaders Burnley at Bramall Lane in a 5-2 win.

Mark Robins (Coventry City)

What had already been a remarkable recovery from a twin lack of home fixtures and fit strikers was accelerated in November under Robins’ calm leadership. A perfect four wins without conceding a goal lifted his side into the top half.

 

The Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprises former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.

The award winner will be announced on Friday.
