Peter Shreeves carries off Division One accolade
Peter Shreeves carries off Division One accolade
Sheffield Wednesday caretaker-manager Peter Shreeves has been named Nationwide Division One manager of the month for March.

Shreeves picked up the award after steering the Owls to four wins and one draw during the month, ensuring their climb away from the relegation trapdoor.

The Division Two award goes to Port Vale's Brian Horton following his record of four wins and two draws as well as securing a berth in the LDV Vans Trophy final.

Scunthorpe United's Brian Laws was named the Third Division manager of the month after steering his team to within shouting distance of a play-off spot.

We have put this run together at a great time - coming towards the end of the season
  Brian Laws, Scunthorpe boss

Shreeves said: "I do not think I have ever enjoyed a better March in management.

"I am looking for the side to deliver 50 points to give us a very good chance of retaining First Division status and having ground out five magnificent results in March we are heading in the right direction."

Horton said: "This has been a tremendously successful month for the club. Not only have we put 14 points from a possible 18 in the bag but we have also secured a berth in a prestigious domestic final."

Laws said: "We have put this run together at a great time - coming towards the end of the season.

"We have done it without nine first team players which has been the worst injury record the club has experienced in decades.

"Our target now is to get some of these players fit and hopefully push on into the play-off picture."
