Wigan Athletic duo Paul Cook and Will Grigg have been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Manager and Player of the Month awards for April respectively.

During a busy April schedule of eight games, Cook continued his side’s charge to promotion. Fifteen points were gained and 17 goals scored along the way as Latics stayed true to his principles and passed their way into the Championship.

Cook is up against Neal Ardley (AFC Wimbledon), Nick Daws (Scunthorpe United) and Tony Mowbray (Blackburn Rovers) for the award which will be announced at 6am on Friday 4 May.

Grigg scored six goals and grabbed an assist in eight April games. He did it all - nipping in for a header at Portsmouth, running in behind, as he did in his hat-trick against MK Dons and sliding home a late winner over Oxford.

The Latics frontman will go up against Nathan Delfouneso (Blackpool), Rory McArdle (Scunthorpe United) and Duckens Nazon (Oldham Athletic) for the award which will be announced at 6am on Friday 4 May.

The judging panel for the manager award comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley, Sky Sports’ EFL League expert Don Goodman; EFL Marketing Director Drew Barrand, League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet EFL Trader Mikey Mumford.
