Kevin Nugent has been nominated for League One’s manager of the month for November.
He actually only presided over three of the matches after the sacking of Russell Slade, but pulled off a 5-1 win at Bristol Rovers and beat Port Vale 2-0 at The Valley.
Patrick Bauer’s late equaliser against Sheffield United in SE7 ensured the assistant manager signed off with an unbeaten record before Karl Robinson took total charge
The Addicks also knocked League One leaders Scunthorpe United out of the FA Cup while Russell Slade was still in charge but suffered a one-sided 3-0 loss at Swindon Town.
That makes it highly unlikely that Nugent will win the award when it is announced this morning.
Scunthorpe boss Graham Alexander is shortlisted for the third time in four months but is yet to collect the award. His team took 10 points from four matches in November.
Southend United’s Phil Brown and Gillingham’s Justin Edinburgh are also in the running.
Nugent did collect one award lately. That emphatic victory against the Gas saw him land the League Managers’ Association’s Performance Of The Week.
