Burnley boss Sean Dyche has scooped the Championship Manager of the Month award for April after guiding the club to automatic promotion to the Premier League.

The Clarets secured their place in the top flight with a 2-0 victory over Wigan Athletic on April 21.

Dave Bassett, who chairs the judging panel, said: "Sean had to cope with injuries to key players during the month and the pressure of sustaining a remarkable push for promotion. He kept the momentum going in a series of closely contested matches throughout the month."

Dyche, who has beaten out Nigel Pearson, Oscar Garcia and Ian Holloway to the award, oversaw his team clinch five wins and one draw last month.
