Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell has been named Coca-Cola Championship Manager of the Month for March.
Blackwell's side enjoyed an impressive month, winning four of their six league fixtures and remaining unbeaten throughout March. They began the month with back to back victories against Birmingham City and Coventry City before picking up two creditable draws from their matches against Queens Park Rangers and Blackpool. They continued their fine run with wins over Derby County and Cardiff City to end an impressive month which saw the Blades move into the Play-Off places in the Coca-Cola Championship as they head into April.
Chris Kamara, chairman of the Coca-Cola Manager of the Month Awards panel, said: "Sheffield United had the hardest fixtures out of any team in the Coca-Cola Championship and came through with flying colours. They beat two of their fellow promotion contenders, Birmingham City and Cardiff City and in doing so have put themselves in contention not only for the Play Offs, but also for automatic promotion if they continue this sort of form."
