PAUL Warne has dedicated his award to his staff and players after being named Sky Bet League One Manager of the Month.

The boss picked up the prize for February when the table-topping Millers look 19 points from a possible 21 and conceded only one goal in seven games.

The man who contributed most to six clean sheets, goalkeeper Josh Vickers, was among the nominees for the player gong that went to Cheltenham Town's Alfie May who hit eight goals in six outings.

Warne said: "I am grateful to take this award on behalf of the club. "I appreciate it is my name above the door but it doesn't feel like an honour for me.

"It is a trophy for everybody at the club and that must mean that we're doing something right.

"I don't walk on to the pitch, I don't keep the players fit in the gym and I don't coach them as much as Rich (number two Barker) and Hammy (coach Matt Hamshaw) do."

The manager was chosen ahead of Sheffield Wednesday's Darren Moore, MK Dons' Liam Manning and Gillingham's Neil Harris by a judging panel that included former Barnsley manager Danny Wilson and Sky TV EFL pundit Dan Goodman.
