Wednesday manager Gary Megson is in the running for the npower League One Manager of the Month award for October..

The Owls boss has guided his side up to third in the table, behind leaders Charlton Athletic and Huddersfield Town, thanks to four wins, a draw and one defeat throughout last month.

Wednesday kicked-off the month with a 1-0 win at Hartlepool United before victory over Chesterfield at home, 3-1, and a 2-2 draw at Sheffield United followed.

The Owls eased by Colchester United 2-0 before suffering their only defeat at Carlisle United, 3-2. But they finished the month with a 2-1 win at Wycombe Wanderers.

Megson will be up against Charlton’s Chris Powell, Huddersfield’s Lee Clark and Leyton Orients Russell Slade for the accolade, which will be announced later this week.
