Walsall boss Jon Whitney has surprisingly been nominated for League 1 manager of the month for November.

Whitney guided the Saddlers to two league wins in November (Fleetwood and AFC Wimbledon) but did suffer a home defeat against Gillingham at the start of the month.

Away from the league it wasn’t a pleasurable month as the Saddlers were knocked out to League 2 Newport in the FA Cup and exited the Checkatrade Trophy against Bury – although cup matches do not count.

Whitney goes up against Tony Mowbray (Blackburn), Graham Alexander (Scunthorpe) and Kenny Jackett (Portsmouth)

Winner will be announced on Friday.
