Dean Smith, Walsall: Vote 1
On a shoe-string budget Smith has Walsall playing attractive football and occupying a play-off place. Could he lead them to the second tier for the first time in a decade?
Steven Pressley, Coventry City: Vote 2
Administration, no ground, no fans (at “home") and a ten point deduction and yet Pressley has them playing attractive football and would have them in the play-offs without the missing ten points.
Lee Clark, Birmingham City: Vote 3
An owner in prison, no money and a squad made up of frees, kids and loans. Relegation could be a realistic expectation and yet Leek Lark has Blues almost as close to the play-offs as the bottom three.
Kenny Jackett, Wolves: Vote 4
Back to back relegations have brought Wolves to their lowest position since 1988/89. Jackett has not only stopped the rot but has them looking up rather than down for the first time in years.
Paul Lambert, Villa: Vote 5
Only goal difference keeps Villa out of the top half of the table while this time last year they sat a point from the relegation zone.
So cast your votes now - who has done the best job for their club so far this season?
Try not to be too partisan if you can, my vote would probably go to Smith for his excellent work with Walsall
W.Midlands Manager of the Season...
