Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month award for August.

The 48-year-old, alongside his right-man Richard Dobson, have helped the Chairboys enjoy one of their best starts to an EFL season, as Wanderers gained 10 points from a possible 15.

In those five games, Wycombe defeated Accrington Stanley, Cheltenham Town, and Lincoln City, as well as drawing away at Wigan Athletic before they ended the month losing away to Sunderland despite the positive performance.

Prior to the international break, Wycombe are seventh and are out of the play-off places on goal difference.

Ainsworth has also been nominated alongside Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink of Burton Albion, Sunderland's Lee Johnson, and Wigan Athletic’s boss Leam Richardson.

The judging panel said: "[Gareth] Ainsworth asked his players who wanted a promotion this time around even before last season’s relegation was confirmed.

“It meant there has been no hangover and a positive, vibrant start has brought 10 points from five games."

The winner will be announced by the EFL and Sky Bet on Friday morning.

Up next for Wycombe is an away trip to Oxford United on September 11.
