TWO BLUEBIRDS have been nominated for League Two awards.

Caretaker boss Rob Kelly is in the running for the League Two Manager of the Month award.

Kelly guided Barrow to four consecutive victories in March.

This included an eye-catching 2-0 win at promotion-chasing Cheltenham Town, which took The Bluebirds out of the relegation zone.

Former Barrow boss Ian Evatt, who won promotion with the club last year is also up for the award.

Evatt’s Bolton Wanderers side enjoyed an impressive month, winning five and drawing one, as they realised their League One ambitions.

It would be his second consecutive accolade and third of the season should Evatt be named the award winner.

After his side scored 11 goals in six games, collecting 13 points in their promotion chase, Morecambe's Derek Adams, has also been nominated for the award.

Stevenage gaffer, Alex Revell, completes the nominations.

His side conceded only two goals in six games and picked up 14 points from a possible 18.

It now means The Boro are 17 points clear of the drop.

The award will be judged by former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL commentator Don Goodman, EFL Communications Director Mark Rowan and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.

On the shortlist for the Player of the Month award is left-back Patrick Brough.

Brough has been credited for helping Barrow’s resurgence up the League Two table, where they now find themselves six points clear of Southend United in 23rd.

The 25-year-old netted both of Barrow’s goals in a 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Mansfield Town.

Alongside this clinical display, the defender’s athleticism has been a key feature in recent weeks.

The former Carlisle United man faces competition from Bolton’s Alex Baptiste.

35-year-old Baptiste was part of a Trotters side that only let in three goals during six games in March.

Wes Hoolohan, who plays for league leaders Cambridge United, is in the running for his second award of the season.

The 38-year-old former Norwich City midfielder featured in all four of Cambridge's March victories, which saw him net the winner against Forest Green Rovers.

Exeter City attacker Matt Jay is on the shortlist too.

Jay scored five times for The Grecians, including a hat-trick during a 4-0 route over Leyton Orient.

The winners in both categories are set to be announced on Friday.
