Danny Cowley has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two manager of the month, meanwhile Ollie Palmer has been selected on the shortlist for player of the month for March.

The Imps’ manager is on the shortlist after City picked up 11 points across the course of the month from a possible 15, staying unbeaten in the process.  Three wins and two draws moved the Imps back into the top seven in SkyBet League Two and all with the lure of Wembley on the horizon. 

Other nominees for the award are Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman, Mark Robins of Coventry City and Carlisle United manager, Keith Curle.

Ollie Palmer was nominated for the player of the month gong after scoring three times across the month and making a terrific impact coming on from the substitutes bench.

His first was the last gasp equaliser away at Mansfield Town, his second was a wonderful individual effort sealing the 3-1 win over Chesterfield, before his late goal against Exeter City on Good Friday which sealed the comeback win over the Grecians.

Karlan Ahearne-Grant of Crawley Town, Cheltenham Town striker Mohamed Eisa and Wycombe defender Adam El-Abd are the other players looking to scoop the title.

The winners of the respective awards will be announced on Friday 6th April.
