Cobblers duo Chris Wilder, Ricky Holmes take January League Two honours

Chris Wilder and Ricky Holmes of Northampton Town do the double in January's League Two Manager and Player awards.

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.
