Brighton boss Gus Poyet has been named npower Championship manager of the month for August.

Poyet's Seagulls, who were promoted last season as League One champions, lie top of the table after an unbeaten start with four wins and a draw.

"This is a credit to everyone at the club, but especially the staff at the training ground and of course the players," the Uruguayan told Albion's official website.

"We can do all the work possible in training but if the players don't do it on the pitch we don't get to the top of the league. The whole team have been great.

"To get a prize like this depends on a lot of people and we are delighted to have started the way we have.

"The way we play, individuals don't stand out. This award is recognition for the whole squad."
