Colchester boss Paul Lambert has been named League One manager of the month for January.
Lambert, who took over from Geraint Williams in October, has guided the Us from the foot of the table to 11th.
"We've just got the players believing in themselves and they are doing well for me," he told Sky Sports News.
He added: "People have got to remember we've come a long way in a short space of time, but we'll have a go at it."
