Their strong start to the campaign has seen them reach the top of the table.

"It's really pleasing but it's not just for me - it's for the whole team. The players have to go out there and perform and get the results," said Smith.

"And for the staff behind me – this is for all of them as well. It's not just an individual accolade, because you can't get them without the rest of the team working well together. It's really pleasing and it just shows that we're doing well at the moment."

Nigel Adkins, Justin Edinburgh and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink were also up for the award.
