Thordarson's men hit fine form in February, winning four of their five league fixtures. After a narrow defeat away at Leyton Orient the Railwaymen went on to notch up an incredible four league wins in a row, with victories against Southend United and Huddersfield Town followed by impressive wins over Yeovil Town and Brighton & Hove Albion. Their excellent month culminated in Thordarson's side moving out of the relegation places.
Chris Kamara, chairman of the Coca-Cola Manager of the Month Awards panel, said: "Gudjon Thordarson has had an incredible impact at Crewe since taking charge at the turn of the year. He has transformed the fortunes of the club in a short space of time and this was there for all to see in February, with his side picking up four wins out of five in the month to lift them out of the League 1 relegation zone."
