Boss nominated

1 May 2014

Nigel Clough has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month award for April.

The Blades chief goes up against Oldham's Lee Johnson, Kenny Jackett of Wolves and Peterborough's Darren Ferguson for the gong, the winner of which will be announced on Friday.

Of Clough, the League commented: "He maintained his side's focus admirably, demanding and receiving maximum effort outside their FA Cup semi-final. They gained five points from three unbeaten games against promotion-chasing Brentford, Leyton Orient and Rotherham United."

Despite the FA Cup semi-final, the Blades remained unbeaten in the league in April, which culminated with Chris Porter's late goal in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Oldham Athletic.

Clough has already won the award once this season, he picked up the February award.

The judging panel is chaired by former Football League manager Dave Bassett with Sky Sports' Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Chief Operating Officer Andy Williamson; League Managers' Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins.

Sky Bet is the title sponsor of The Football League. The sponsorship includes a revenue share deal with all 72 member clubs.

The revenue share generates money, paid to every club, based on the revenue generated by their fans that sign up and bet with Sky Bet.

Through this ongoing arrangement, Sky Bet is able to add another income stream to every club in The Sky Bet Football League.
