Scots bosses dominate nominations for manager awards in English Football League, including Alex Neil, Paul Lambert and Robbie Neilson



Scottish bosses dominate the nominations for the Manager of the Month awards for January in the English Football League.

In the Championship, Norwich City boss Alex Neil is up against Paul Lambert’s Wolves after turning the Canaries’ season around.

City won three out of four league games to boost their play-off hopes last month, while former Celtic midfielder Lambert’s Wolves collected seven points from a possible 12.

Reading’s Jaap Stam and Neil Warnock of Cardiff City are also in the running for the award.

Former Hearts manager Robbie Neilson’s start at League One side MK Dons has not gone unnoticed after going through the month undefeated.

Scunthorpe manager and former Scotland internationalist Graham Alexander is also among the nominees.

And in League Two Doncaster manager Darren Ferguson faces competition from fellow Scotsman Steve Evans of Mansfield Town for their division’s award.
