Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook and defender Chey Dunkley have been nominated for the League One Manager and Player of the Month awards for March.

Cook was nominated after Latics followed-up their FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Southampton - and draws against Scunthorpe United and Blackburn Rovers - with four consecutive wins to return to the top of the table by the end of the month.

Dunkley also enjoyed a good month, impressing in defence and contributing three goals and four successive clean sheets to Wigan’s promotion charge.

Cook is up against Keith Hill (Rochdale), Dan Micciche (MK Dons) and John Sheridan (Fleetwood Town) whilst Dunkley faces competition from Alex Cairns (Fleetwood Town), Jack Marriott (Peterborough United) and Brett Pitman (Portsmouth).

Winners for each award will be announced at 6am on Friday.
