Posted: Fri 06 Jan 2017

The winners of the Sky Bet Manager and Player of the Month awards for December 2016/17 have been announced.

It was double delight for Rochdale in Sky Bet League One as boss Keith Hill and midfielder Matty Lund collected the awards.

Dale were bottom in mid-September but ended 2016 in fourth, which culminated by them winning all four of their December matches. They also netted 11 goals, and three of those were scored by Lund against Northampton Town - his first career hat-trick.

Two other players in the goals during December were Barnsley's Sam Winnall and Wycombe Wanderers Scott Kashket.

Winnall netted six times in six games to earn the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award, while Kashket picked up the Sky Bet League Two award after scoring in all four of the Chairboys' December matches.

Elsewhere, Chris Hughton was named the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month after steering the Seagulls to 13 points from a possible 15.

And, in Sky Bet League Two, John McGreal collected the managerial gong having lifted Colchester United from 23rd in November, to ninth at the close of December.
