SKY BET: United boss nominated for March Manager of the Month award

Unbeaten run puts manager in spotlight

3 April 2018

United boss Keith Curle has been nominated for the Sky Bet League Two Manager of the Month award for March following an unbeaten sequence of results for the Blues.

The run has taken the Cumbrians to within touching distance of the play-offs with a haul of nine points from the five games played.

Speaking about the nomination, Curle said: "Things like this mean that the squad is doing things right. It hasn't all gone our way, but we've kept our eye on what we want to achieve and we have continued to compete every step of the way.

"It's a pat on the back for everybody - the stakeholders, the management staff, the players, the fans and everyone who has an affiliation with this club. We've pulled together and picked up momentum at exactkly the right time and we'll be doing everything we can to make sure that continues."

Curle won the Sky Bet Manager of the Month award in October 2016, when his side went on an unbeaten six-game run, and was nominated in April 2017 having took his side back into play-off contention.

John Coleman (Accrington Stanley)

A second straight nomination for February’s winner and this time his side were perfect. They won all four games and conceded just two goals, beating erstwhile leaders Luton away and taking over at the top of League Two. 

Danny Cowley (Lincoln City)

Kept the minds of his players off the upcoming EFL Trophy final and firmly on the task of securing a play-off berth. Their fitness and intensity paid off with late goals which helped to secure 11 points from five unbeaten games. 

Keith Curle (Carlisle United)

Maintaining focus was the key for the Blues as Curle guided his side to nine points from five unbeaten games and towards the play-off places. 

Mark Robins (Coventry City)

Appears to be timing his side’s surge towards promotion to perfection. Not one to panic, he has added experience in key positions to Coventry’s youthful core. A haul of 11 points from five games lifted City into the play-off places.

The winner will be announced on Friday morning.
