The Cobblers gathered a maximum 12-point haul in January under Wilder to shoot to the top of the league and comfortably clear of those chasing the automatic-promotion places.

Holmes recently returned from injury and was key to Northampton maintaining their form last month.

The striker scored twice, including a volleyed winner at Dagenham & Redbridge, as well as teeing up his teammates for two other goals.
