Football - Clough scoops gong

Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough has been voted Sky Bet League One manager of the month for February.

PA Sport Report

Clough, 47, steered his side to four straight league wins during February as they have completed a remarkable turnaround to climb clear of relegation trouble.

A 3-0 defeat at Crewe on February 1 left the Blades second from bottom in the table, but they have since embarked on an eight-game unbeaten run in all competitions, including seven straight wins, while a 3-1 victory against Nottingham Forest saw them reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Former Burton manager Clough replaced David Weir as Blades boss at the end of October, just short of a month after being sacked by Derby.

Tuesday night's home win against Peterborough lifted Clough's side up to 10th place, eight points adrift of the play-offs.
