Coventry's Chris Coleman has been named the Coca-Cola Championship manager of the month for February.

The Welshman guided City to three wins from four matches during the month, including victories over league leaders Wolves and fellow automatic promotion contenders Birmingham.

"They were two excellent performances in very big midlands derby matches and we played very well," Coleman told Sky Sports News. "It was a very difficult month with trips to Burnley and Norwich and the two FA Cup games against Blackburn, so to remain unbeaten in those six matches is very pleasing."

Coleman believes his side still have an outside chance of mounting a late charge for the play-offs, despite Wednesday's home defeat to Sheffield United.

He added: "There are still a lot of games to play, we have been stuck in the middle of the league for a long time but if we can break into the top half and the top 10 then we can come close to that.

"There is always a team that puts on a late surge, it is going to be heard for us to get into the play-offs but you never say never."
