Jokanovic helped spearhead a turnaround after the Blades disappointing start to the campaign, kicking off the month following the international break with a 6-2 win over Peterborough.

United went on to register two further wins over Hull City and Derby County, as well as a draw with Preston before ending September with a defeat away to Middlesbrough.

The Blades boss goes up against Blackpool’s Neil Critchley, Bournemouth manager Scott Parker and Derby’s Wayne Rooney for the prize.
