Boss Rowett, up for the manager of the month gong, masterminded a 16-point haul for his side from six games, with only one goal conceded.

When December began, Derby were eight points off the automatic promotion places. When it ended, they were in them.

Rowett is up against Lee Johnson (Bristol City), Alex Neil (Preston North End) and Nuno Espirito Santo (Wolverhampton Wanderers).
