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

The Hatters chief, who has only been in the job for two months, took 10 points during February, with wins over Wycombe Wanderers, Hartlepool United and York City, to reignite his side’s slim hopes of a play-off place.

Jones is up against Kevin Nolan (Leyton Orient), Neal Ardley (AFC Wimbledon) and Chris Wilder (Northampton Town), as the league’s official website of his nomination: “Jones has brought consistency in style and results at Kenilworth Road since arriving for his first tilt at management.

“Five February games yielded 10 points for his team, including an impressive 1-0 victory at promotion-chasing Wycombe.”

The winner will be announced on Friday.
