Brighton manager Gus Poyet has been named League One Manager of the Month for March.

Poyet led the Seagulls to eight straight wins during last month, six of which were secured without conceding a goal.

The south-coast side are odds on for promotion having built an 11-point lead at the top of English football's third tier, a position they have held since late September.


Goalkeeper Casper Ankergren also received the Player of the Month award courtesy of the team's impressive clean sheet record during March.

It is the second time former Leeds duo Poyet and Ankergren have picked up the gongs this season having also completed a clean sweep in September.
