City manager Gary Bowyer has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award for October.

Bowyer has been short-listed after the Bantams gained 2-1 victories over Swindon Town, Morecambe and Crawley Town last month - taking nine points from a possible 12 which laid the platform for them to go second at the weekend following their win over Exeter.

Salford City chief Graham Alexander, Mansfield Town's John Dempster and Michael Duff of Cheltenham Town are also nominated.

The winner of the prize will be announced at 6am on Friday.
