Their unbeaten run continued after Vadaine Oliver scored a late leveller in a 2-2 home draw with AFC Wimbledon on September 24.

Cook excelled with a five-goal haul in September, netting braces against old club Tranmere and Stevenage alongside a strike against another of his former employers in Walsall.

Hughes is vying for the accolade with Northampton Town manager Jon Brady, Swindon Town boss Scott Lindsey and Leyton Orient's Richie Wellens.
