Despite guiding his U’s side out of the relegation zone, and into mid-table, with four wins out of six league games in his first full month at the helm, Dunne has been overlooked for the October accolade.

Dunne was named on a short-list of three, but instead Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson has won the award. The Blades scooped 16 points out of a possible 18 in October.

Likewise, U’s midfielder Craig Eastmond, who was on the short-list of three for the League One player-of-the-month award, has also missed out.

Instead, Sheffield United keeper George Long has got the nod.

However, ex-U’s winger Ashley Vincent, who left over the summer to join Port Vale, has been named League Two player-of-the-month, while ex-U’s defender Mark Yates has won the manager-of-the-month title in the same division, for his inspired last few weeks at high-flying Cheltenham
