Cheltenham manager Mark Yates has won the npower League Two manager of the month award.

Town conceded just one goal in November on their way to three wins and that was enough to secure Yates the gong.

"I'm delighted to receive this award, but it's one for the whole team and not just myself," he told the club's official website. "I am nothing without my players and they have been superb this season."

Alan Curbishley, who chairs the judging panel, pointed to the Robins' impressive away record as to why Yates was victorious.

"November was a fantastic month for Cheltenham," Curbishley told the club's official website.

"Notable away wins at Oxford and Bradford mean they now occupy an automatic promotion spot," he added.
