Blackpool manager Simon Grayson has been named Coca-Cola League 1 Manager of the Month for December.
Grayson's side produced their best form of the season in December, taking maximum points from five of their six league games. Their winning run included home victories over Cheltenham Town, Carlisle United and Doncaster Rovers. The Seasiders form away from Bloomfield Road was equally impressive, registering wins over AFC Bournemouth and high-flying Scunthorpe United to end the month amongst the Play-Off places in Coca-Cola League 1.
Chris Kamara, chairman of the Coca-Cola Manager of the Month Awards panel said:
"Simon Grayson is doing a terrific job at Blackpool. His side produced a string of impressive performances in December, particularly their result at Scunthorpe which made everyone in League 1 stand up and take notice. Their points haul during the month has seen the Seasiders go from mid-table to serious Play-Off contenders."
