SOUTHEND United boss Chris Powell has been selected on a four man shortlist for League One manager of the month for October.

Powell's team picked up 10 points in six League games during the month.

Luton Town's Nathan Jones, Coventry City's Mark Robins and Sunderland's Jack Ross has also been named on the shortlist.

However, Powell seems unlikely to win the award with Luton and Coventry both having picked up 15 points from six games.

Sunderland managed 13 points from five games.

The winner of the award will be announced on Friday morning.
