Burnley manager Sean Dyche has been named the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month for April.

Dyche instilled belief in his side and stayed calm as they gained 13 points from six games to clinch automatic promotion.

Dave Bassett, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, said: "Sean had to cope with injuries to key players during the month and the pressure of sustaining a remarkable push for promotion.

"He kept the momentum going in a series of closely contested matches throughout the month."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "Sean is one of the managerial success stories of the season.

"He has got the best out of every player and moulded the group into a team with real spirit and lots of quality.

"Allied to that, he's got his tactics spot on most of the time and that's a recipe that brings success."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: "Four wins in April gave Burnley and Sean Dyche the promotion they never dreamed of back in August.

"It's been a fantastic effort from everyone involved at Turf Moor and none more so than Dyche who has built a hardworking and creative team."
