Chris Wilder has been nominated for npower League Two's manager of the month award for October.

It could be a double celebration for Oxford United when the winners are named on Friday, with Tom Craddock in the running for player of the month.

Wilder made the shortlist after guiding the U's to ten points in October, which included a 5-0 thrashing of Accrington Stanley and a 3-1 win away to Wycombe Wanderers.

It is the second nomination in three months for the United manager, who was included in August's three-man shortlist. He is up against Gillingham's Martin Allen and Cheltenham boss Mark Yates.

Craddock hit a rich vein of form, bagging four goals against Accrington and one terrific volley at Wycombe.

The striker is up against Port Vale's Ashley Vincent and Junior Brown from Fleetwood Town.
