Manchester City manager Stuart Pearce has scooped the Barclays Manager of the Month award for April.
Pearce wants long-term control at Manchester City
Pearce, who took control in March, is the first City boss to land the honour.
And he helped the team go unbeaten in April with home wins over Birmingham, Liverpool and Portsmouth and away draws at Charlton, Fulham and Blackburn.
Since his appointment, Pearce's side have only been beaten once in the league, a narrow 2-1 defeat away to Spurs in his first game in charge.
