October saw Plymouth end the month at the top of League One as only four points separates the top four teams in the division.
Let’s take a look at the nominees for the League One Manager Of The Month and make sure to vote at the bottom of the article!
Paul Warne – Rotherham United
Rotherham picked up a remarkable 13 points from a possible 15 as they picked up four league wins in October.
The Millers currently sit in fourth place but remain just three points off top of the league, Plymouth.
Their latest win was in impressive one. Rotherham convincingly beat promotion rival, Sunderland 5-1 which proved their ability this season.
Rotherham have won promotion in their previous three seasons in League One and are looking confident to do it again.

Karl Robinson – Oxford United
Oxford United managed to win four games out of five during October with their only loss coming against league-leaders Plymouth.
Their impressive form has seen The U’s break into the play-off places as they look to join the leagues front runners.

Ryan Lowe – Plymouth Argyle
Plymouth spent October unbeaten in League One as they finished the month at the top of the league.
Lowe has been in charge of Plymouth since June 2019 and guided the club to League Two promotion at the first time of asking.
The momentum has carried on into League One after they managed to stay up last season and have kicked on to become the early League One leaders during the 2021-22 campaign.

Gareth Ainsworth – Wycombe Wanderers
Wycombe have also spent all of October unbeaten in League One having won four out of six games and only drawing to Fleetwood and high-flying Rotherham.
Ainsworth has become a legend at Adams Park during his tenure at Wycombe, winning promotion to the Championship in 2020 via the play-offs.
However, last season saw The Chairboys relegated from the Championship after they finished 22nd, only one point from 21st place Derby County.
Wycombe are hoping to bounce straight back and their October form will do nothing but help them.Embed from Getty Images
