Kenny Jackett has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month award for November.
He led the Blues to three victories and a draw from their four league fixtures, scoring 11 goals in the process.
Southend and high-flying Rotherham were both seen off at Fratton Park, while there was a 3-0 win at Rochdale.
It was a successful month for the Blues, who also beat non-league duo Harrogate Town and Altrincham in the FA Cup.
Jackett will have to fight off competition from Wycombe’s Gareth Ainsworth, Bristol Rovers’ Graham Coughlan and Rotherham’s Paul Warne to land the prize.
The winner will be announced on Friday morning and is decided by a judging panel that includes former Barnsley boss Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, EFL communications director Mark Rowan and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
