Keith Alexander praised his Lincoln players after being named League Two manager of the month for November.
Nine points and nine goals in the month saw the Imps lift themselves from the bottom half of the table to fifth place in League 2
City's boss said: "Without players you don't win awards and it's down to the players that I've won this one.
"I'm highly delighted to have won, but I'm like a lot of people in that winning awards puts you under pressure.
Chris Kamara, chairman of the coca-Cola Manager of the Month Awards panel said: " The Imps were second from bottom in League 2 after taking just four points from their first six matches, but Keith has turned things around and has got his team playing good football and scoring freely."
