Northampton only played twice in December but they triumphed against promotion rivals in both, beating Exeter City 2-1 and then Harrogate Town by the same margin in back-to-back away games.

Those results cemented their place in second in League Two, eight points behind table-topping Forest Green Rovers.

Brady faces competition from Nigel Clough, who guided Mansfield Town to a maximum nine points from three games in December, and Micky Mellon, manager of in-inform Tranmere Rovers. Keith Hill, recently appointed at struggling Scunthorpe United, is also in the frame.
