Kenny Jackett has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One December Manager of the Month award.
He led the Blues to four victories from their five matches, with triumphs over Charlton, Bury, AFC Wimbledon and Northampton.
Jackett will have to fight off competition from Plymouth’s Derek Adams, Shrewsbury’s Paul Hurst and Rotherham’s Paul Warne to land the prize.
It is the second month in succession that Jackett has been shortlisted for the League One prize.
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 Manager’s Association director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL trader Mikey Mumford.
