The former Bees sporting director only took over from Wigan-bound Uwe Rosler on December 10 but has guided the club to the top of the table on the back of five consecutive wins.

They needed a 90th-minute goal from Jonathan Douglas to beat Oldham 1-0 in Warburton's first game in charge and have since secured wins over Preston, Swindon, MK Dons and Peterborough - scoring a further 12 goals in the process.

Sam Saunders has made it a double celebration for the Bees after he was named Player of the Month. The 30-year-old winger has scored in each of their last four matches.
