Dons boss Karl Robinson and midfielder Stephen Gleeson have been nominated for League 1 Manager of the Month and League 1 Player of the Month awards for December.

Wins over Wolves, Crawley and Port Vale helped dramatically turn around Dons’ ailing season last month, with Gleeson netting two spectacular goals along the way.

Robinson goes up against new Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough, Steve Cotterill of Bristol City and Mark Warburton of Brentford.

Gleeson meanwhile faces competition from fellow midfielder Jose Baxter (Sheffield United), defender Paul Downing (Walsall) and winger Sam Saunders (Brentford).

The pair will find out whether they have won the award tomorrow (Friday).
