Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month award for November.

The 56-year-old tactician masterminded three victories in November 2018 which took Pompey to the top of the League One standings.

Jackett will be hoping to win the award for the fifth time and join Lee Clark, Darren Ferguson, and Simon Grayson, who have clinched it five times.

A club statement read: "He led the Blues to victory in all three of their matches, with away successes at Bradford and Scunthorpe, as well as a Fratton triumph over Walsall."

"The winner will be announced on Friday morning and is decided by a judging panel that includes former Ipswich boss George Burley, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, EFL marketing director Drew Barrand, League Managers’ Association director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL trader Mikey Mumford."
