Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook named League One Manager of the Month for March

Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook is named the League One Manager of the Month for March thanks to four wins and two draws during a hectic month.

Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook has been named the League One Manager of the Month for March.

The Latics endured a hectic month as they had numerous league games in hand to get through due to their FA Cup quarter-final run.

Despite the daunting schedule, Wigan drew with promotion rivals Blackburn Rovers and Scunthorpe United before beating Bradford City, Walsall, Bury and Oldham Athletic by a 9-0 goal differential.

"Am I happy to get March's award? I'd much prefer to get April's! If I was sitting here with April's award it would mean that we've had a fantastic end to the season," Cook told the EFL website.

"After Monday's defeat at Portsmouth, we're still very much in the race with two other teams who are both having outstanding seasons.

"We've got eight games to go, and like I always say, it's in our hands now, and as the games filter down wins become massively more important.

"For us, it's about being focused, enjoying the run in but we've got great players in our team. I've got great belief in the players and we'll soon find out what it brings."

Keith Hill of Rochdale, Dan Micciche of MK Dons and John Sheridan of Fleetwood Town were also nominated for the award.
