Luton Town manager Nathan Jones has won the League Two Manager of the Month award for a second consecutive month.

The Hatters picked up 10 points in November, scoring 14 goals along the way, to rise to the top of the division.

Luton are currently the top scorers in the country, having already found the back of the net 63 times in all competitions, and recently thrashed local rivals Cambridge United 7-0.

Premier League leaders Manchester City are the closest team to them with 62 goals.

"I'm very proud. Obviously, I said last month it's an accumulation of not just my work but the work of my staff and players collectively," Jones said.

"It's been another fantastic month in terms of results and performances and I'm very proud to receive it.

"The pleasing thing about this month is it would've been quite easy for the players to rest on their laurels but they haven't and they've wanted to do even better this month."

Luton face fellow promotion contenders Notts County at Kenilworth Road on Saturday, with only goal difference separating the two sides.

In League One, MK Dons and Peterborough United have home games against Shrewsbury Town and Blackburn Rovers, but Southend United and Northampton Town are on the road at Bristol Rovers and Oldham Athletic.

Ipswich Town travel to Middlesbrough in The Championship and struggling Norwich City host Sheffield Wednesday in the late kick-off.
