Rotherham United manager Mark Robins has won the Coca-Cola League Two manager of the month award for August.

The Millers boss has guided his team to a six-game unbeaten start, including Carling Cup wins over Championship sides Sheffield Wednesday and Wolves.

"I think the players and the rest of my staff deserve a lot of credit," Robins told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"We are in it together, and include the fans, and that's what it's about and why you win the awards."

Rotherham started the season with a 17-point deduction, but have reduced their deficit to just -7 points after three wins and a draw.

Robins pipped Bury boss Alan Knill, John Still of Dagenham & Redbridge and Shrewsbury manager Paul Simpson to the award.
