Charlton Athletic boss Alan Curbishley has been awarded February's Barclaycard Manager of the Month Award.

Curbishley has guided the Addicks to a six-game unbeaten stretch in the league, only the FA Cup defeat by Fulham marring his run.

Along the way, Charlton also set a new club record of five successive Premiership victories.

It is the third time Curbishley, who has been in charge for nearly 12 years, has picked up the award.

The Barclaycard Awards Panel, comprised of football officials, the media and fans, singled out Curbishley's resourcefulness for praise.

Born: 08/11/1957
Played for: West Ham, Birmingham, Aston Villa, Charlton, Brighton
Addicks career:
1990 Player-coach
1991 Joint-manager
1995 Sole charge
Honours: Promoted to Premiership 1998
Div One champs 2000

"Alan Curbishley has made a name for himself as a manager who gets results with limited resources and this season is no exception," the Panel said.

"Charlton are currently sixth in the Barclaycard Premiership two points ahead of Liverpool.

"That is a great achievement for the manager and the club and they no doubt have one eye on European qualification."

The award rounds off a successful period for the Addicks who are top of the form table ahead of champions Arsenal.

Regular first-team player Paul Konchesky made his England debut against Australia in February, team-mate Scott Parker was in the squad.

Now Curbishley will be hoping that his luck stays with him for Sunday's tough trip to leaders Arsenal.
