Jim Bentley has been nominated for the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month award for September.
The Shrimps were unbeaten last month as part of a six-match League 2 run without defeat which has seen them rise up the table.
They scored three times in the wins at Southend United and Newport County, picking up eight points in four matches.
He is joined on the shortlist by Chesterfield’s Paul Cook, Mansfield Town’s Paul Cox and Keith Hill from Rochdale.
Bentley said: “It’s nice and I’m pleased.
“It’s not just me there’s the whole group who are unbeaten in September and teams that have done better than us.
“But it’s good to be recognised.”
The winners will be announced on Friday.
