TORQUAY United boss Paul Buckle appears to have Port Vale's Micky Adams as his main rival for a second Manager Of The Month award this season.
Buckle has been nominated for the November award, along with Adams, Shrewsbury's Graham Turner and Rotherham's Ronnie Moore.
Torquay were unbeaten (W4 D3) during last month, as were League Two leaders Vale (W4 D3).
Shrewsbury and Rotherham both lost matches.
Buckle is in line for his second award of the campaign – he won it for August – and the outcome will be announced next Thursday.
