Northampton Town manager Jon Brady has been named the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month for March.
Brady has battled an injury crisis for the past three months, yet still found a way to inspire his side through an unbeaten month to earn 13 points from five games, which included an impressive four clean sheets.
Brady said: "It is a great honour for the whole club. It is a real team effort here and the players deserve all the credit in the world.
"As a staff we have provided guidance and organisation but the hard work and commitment of the players has been first class and that has been seen in the results.
"Everyone here at this club pulls together, and that includes the staff behind the scenes and this award is a tribute to everyone involved."
Danny Wilson chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel.
He said: “By conceding just one goal in March, you will probably expect to bring some wins home and, boy, did the Cobblers do just that! Thirteen points from five games strengthens their top-three position going into the final throws of the season.”
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman said: “Brady turned February’s draws into wins in March and propelled his side from forth to second.
“It looks to be another automatic promotion race that goes right down to the wire in League Two, with first to eighth all still believing they are in with a shot should they put together a run of form like Northampton did in March.”
Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies said: “At 16/1, it’s testament to Jon Brady’s managerial skills that the Cobblers still have an outside chance of winning Sky Bet League Two.
“After battling an injury crisis for the past few months and proving all the doubters wrong, his side found a way to navigate March unbeaten and take thirteen points from their five games, including an impressive four clean sheets."
The Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel comprises former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson, Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, and Sky Bet EFL trader Ivor Davies.
