Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has been named the npower Championship Manager of the Month for March.

Four wins and a single draw ensured a near perfect month for Davies as he helped propel Nottingham Forest into the Play-Off positions.

While automatic promotion is probably a bridge too far, hitting the Play-Offs on form will certainly be encouraging for the Forest faithful.

Speaking about Davies' win, panel member Alan Curbishley commented: "A fantastic month for Nottingham Forest where their winning run has catapulted their climb into a Play-Off berth.

"Billy Davies is enjoying his return to Forest where his side now have a realistic chance of promotion."

Commenting from npower, Partnership and Sponsorship Manager Katy Thomas added: "So often it's the form team that does well in the Play-Offs, so Forest fans will be silently hopeful that this run can lead to promotion."
