Warne and Newell up for monthly awards

ROTHERHAM United chief Paul Warne has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month Award for February, with winger Joe Newell in contention for the player gong.

The Millers won all five games during the month, beating AFC Wimbledon, Scunthorpe, Oxford, Shrewsbury and Doncaster.

Warne won the December prize and was also nominated in September.

The other nominees are Plymouth's Derek Adams, Blackburn chief Tony Mowbray and Chris Powell of Southend.

Completing a Millers double, Newell has been shortlisted for the Player of the Month prize for his sparkling form throughout February. He netted against Scunthorpe and Doncaster and weighed in with a number of assists.

Strong month...for Joe Newell.
