Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has missed out on the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month Award for August.
Despite winning six out of seven competitive matches in August, including four out of five League matches, Posh boss Darren Ferguson lost out to Russell Slade of Leyton Orient for the League One manager of the month award.
Slade rightfully won the award after navigating his side to the top of League One with a 100% winning record of five wins out of five, including three away from home.
Former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel and he said: 'Russell Slade's men maintain the only 100 per cent record in The Sky Bet Football League after their great start to the season.
'Scoring 13 goals certainly makes Leyton Orient a team you would want to go and watch.'
Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins added: 'Leyton Orient were fancied in some quarters for League 1 this season and they have got off to a dream start.
'Russell Slade has been allowed to add a couple of key players over the summer to an already solid squad and this continuity looks to be paying off.'
PLAYER OF THE MONTH NOMINATIONS
Bradford City striker Nahki Wells has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month for August.
Wells has made the step up to League One with very little effort and now has five goals in as many matches.
Bradford manager Phil Parkinson said: 'This award is thoroughly deserved and a just reward for Nahki's brilliant efforts. I am sure Nahki will be keen to kick on now and keep improving further.'
Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: 'Nahki Wells has carried on the form that fired Bradford to Play-Off Final ecstasy and into this season's Sky Bet League 1.
'This included a brace in the derby victory over Sheffield United which has cemented the Bantams' strong start to the season.'
