AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been awarded with the League One manager of the month award for April.
The Cherries won four of five games in the final month of the season, after winning their final four games of March.
That run of eight consecutive victories broke an all time club record for the football club, as well as securing promotion to the second tier of English football for only the second time in the Cherries history.
That run of form was enough for Howe to pip Doncaster`s Brian Flynn and Yeovil's Gary Johnson to the award.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"I am delighted with the award and it is recognition of the run the team went on,"
"When the pressure was really on and we knew we had to win games, the players came through when they needed to and that was the pleasing aspect from my perspective.
"There was a lot at stake during the final two months of the season and it is a hallmark of a good team that you deliver when the pressure is on. The lads certainly did that."
Speaking to BBC Radio Solent about speculation linking him to the vacant managerial position at Millwall and elsewhere he added...
'It's flattering, but from my point of view I am 100% focused on this club and will be for however long they want me,'
