Wigan Athletic manager Uwe Rosler has been named the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month for February.

Rosler's influence at the DW Stadium gained his side four wins in five matches during the month.

One of those victories was a vital 2-1 success at promotion rivals Brighton and Hove Albion as he inserted belief and solidity in his team.

Dave Bassett, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, said: "Uwe has moved his side firmly into Play-Off contention as we enter the business end of the season.

"He's made a fantastic impact at the DW Stadium, coupling impressive league form with progress in the FA Cup."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "Uwe thoroughly deserves credit this month for guiding his team to four victories in five matches.

"That has propelled them firmly into the Play-Off scrap and with some tough games coming up Wigan will certainly want to take advantage of the good momentum they've built."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: "Uwe has lifted his men during a busy February period.

"The signing of Nicky Maynard appears to be a great piece of business as the Latics look for an instant Premier League return."
