Luton Town boss Nathan Jones has been nominated for the League Two manager of the month award for February.

The 43-year-old led his side to wins over Crawley and Hartlepool, plus draws against Grimsby, Doncaster and Plymouth, while also hammering Yeovil 5-2 in the Checkatrade Trophy last month too

When nominating Jones, the EFL website read: "Draws against promotion rivals Doncaster and Plymouth underpinned a haul of nine points from five unbeaten games for Jones’ team.

"Their consistency has mirrored his measured approach as the pressure to make the play-offs increases..

Jones is up against Jim Bentley (Morecambe), Darren Sarll (Stevenage) and Kevin Nolan (Notts County) for the award, which is announced on Friday.
