STUART McCall is among the contenders to be named League One manager of the month for January.

McCall's Scunthorpe were unbeaten last month and took 13 points from five games to pull away from the bottom four.

That came after a run of seven straight losses up to the end of December, including a 2-0 defeat at Valley Parade just before Christmas.

McCall, who was sacked by City a year ago yesterday, is up against Luton's Mick Harford, Derek Adams at Plymouth and Charlton boss Lee Bowyler.
