Hatters manager John Still and striker Mark Cullen have been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two monthly awards.

Still is on the shortlist for manager of the month alongside Justin Edinburgh (Newport County), Micky Mellon (Shrewsbury Town) and John Sheridan (Plymouth Argyle).

Still led Hatters to five straight league victories, with the division’s sponsors saying: “Under Still’s guidance Luton extended their winning streak to seven games, adding five in October, to move top of Sky Bet League Two.

“His passion and commitment have brought exciting times and crowds of 10,000 back to Kenilworth Road.”

Meanwhile, Cullen, who hit the net five times in October, including his first senior hat-trick has been nominated for player of the month and will battle it out against Kwesi Appiah (Cambridge United), Carl McHugh (Plymouth Argyle) and Brad Potts (Carlisle United) for the honour, won by team-mate Luke Wilkinson in September.

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Head of Communications John Nagle; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery, with the winners announced on Friday.
