Dean Smith was today nominated for the League One Manager of the Month award for September.
The Saddlers claimed eight points from four league fixtures over the course of the month, which also included a famous derby win over Wolves at Molineux.
Walsall also claimed a draw at league leaders Leyton Orient on Saturday despite playing most of the game with ten men – becoming the first team to take points off the O’s in the process.
It is the fifth time Smith has been nominated for the award since becoming Saddlers boss in January 2011 – with the previous four all coming last season. Smith won the award in January.
Preston boss Simon Grayson, Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson and Carlisle United’s Graham Kavanagh are the other three nominees.
The winner will be announced on Friday.
