Keith Hill has been shortlisted for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager Of The Month Award for September.
It follows an impressive month for Dale.
Keith Hill's side went on a five game unbeaten run in September, securing a haul of ten-points.
There were league victories over Fleetwood Town, Millwall and Bolton Wanderers, as well as a draw with Bristol Rovers. Dale also started their EFL Trophy in a positive fashion, after winning the penalty-shootout against Sunderland.
Sky Bet say: "He didn’t panic or abandon his passing principles when his side failed to win any of their first seven League One games. His faith was rewarded with three wins in a ten-point haul, including a stirring 3-2 comeback victory at Millwall."
Bury's Dave Flitcroft, Northampton Manager Rob Page and Sheffield United's Chris Wilder have also been shortlisted.
