Jackson wins manager of the month

Lincoln City boss Peter Jackson has been named the League Two manager of the month for October.

In that time the Imps won five of their six games and drew the other, and moved into the top 10 in the table.

Jackson told BBC Radio Lincolnshire: "I'm just a figurehead, I get the praise when it all goes well and the flak when it doesn't.

"This is a reward for the support I've had from everybody at the club - the players, the supporters and the board."

Jackson beat Wycombe boss Peter Taylor, Chesterfield's Lee Richardson and Darlington's Dave Penney to receive the award for the second time this year, having also received the accolade in February, shortly before undergoing cancer treatment.

He admitted: "That was a sad one because I won manager of the month and then I went to hospital and didn't know if I was going to be coming back to the club.

"A lot of hard work's gone in over the summer and it's been rewarded with this today."

The Championship award went to Dave Jones of Cardiff City, while Bristol Rovers' Paul Trollope received the League One award.

It could be a double celebration for Lincoln, with midfielder Lee Frecklington one of four contenders for the League Two player of the month award.
