190409 Double Nomination

Imps defender Neal Eardley and manager Danny Cowley have been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two Player and Manager of the Month Awards, respectively for March.

Neal, who played in every league game in March, kicked the month off with an assist in the victory over Forest Green Rovers.

Two victories followed over Yeovil Town and Oldham Athletic, with the Welshman taking the armband midway through the latter fixture.

'Eards' wore the armband in the 1-1 draw at Mansfield Town in front of the Sky TV cameras, before providing another assist in the victory at Crawley Town.

Neal scored a sublime free-kick in the draw with Macclesfield Town, and was part of a defence that kept three clean sheets in the month of March.

Other player nominees:

  • Reece Brown (Forest Green Rovers)
  • James Norwood (Tranmere Rovers)
  • Kaiyne Woolery (Swindon Town)

It's yet another monthly nomination for Danny Cowley, as the Imps were unbeaten in the league for a third straight month.

Four wins and two draws helped keep City in pole position in Sky Bet League Two as the season's end nears.

Other manager nominees:

  • John Askey (Port Vale)
  • Micky Mellon (Tranmere Rovers)
  • Paul Tisdale (MK Dons)

The winners of the respective awards will be announced on Friday 12th April.
