Robins up for manager of the month award.
MARK Robins has been nominated for the dreaded Manager of the Month award after Coventry City's unbeaten start to the new League One campaign.
The Sky Blues boss won the title last season after stringing together five consecutive league victories during October, only for it to prove to be the kiss of death as City went on to have a dreadful November and December when they couldn't buy a win for nine games in all competitions, having to wait until Boxing Day for their next three points.
The manager, therefore, may well be hoping one of his fellow nominees - Lincoln's newly departed Danny Cowley, Blackpool's Simon Grayson and Ipswich Town's Paul Lambert - are handed the award instead.
The EFL have nominated Robins recognising the fact that he's guided the club to early success despite playing at a groundshare.
A spokesman said: "It's remarkable when you consider that Coventry have to leave the city to play every game."
