Sky Bet EFL Manager and Player of the Month winners - March 2017

7 April 2017

The winners of the Sky Bet EFL Manager and Player of the Month awards for March 2017 have been announced.

Accrington Stanley had a double celebration in Sky Bet League Two as boss John Coleman and striker Shay McCartan picked up the prizes.

It was just reward for the pair after a month in which Stanley moved from 21st to 13th in the divisional table, spearheaded by six goals in seven games from McCartan.

Bolton Wanderers received up both awards in Sky Bet League One, meanwhile, as they notched 16 points from a possible 18 in March, scoring 17 goals over their six outings.

Phil Parkinson collected the managerial award for leading the side on that scintillating run, and midfielder Filipe Morais was named the Player of the Month having been directly involved in 12 goals.

In the Sky Bet Championship, Wolverhampton Wanderers' Paul Lambert was recognised as the top manager following three successive victories to close out March, which lifted Wolves away from danger.

The Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month award went to Preston North End's Tom Barkhuizen, who scored five goals in a stand-out month.
