He placed the emphasis on establishing a solid foundation and his side are buying in to his tactics, conceding just two goals in four games and earning eight points in the process."
Also nominated is Steve Cotterill of Bristol City, Karl Robinson of the MK Dons and Brentford's Mark Warburton.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
