Coventry City boss Mark Robins has been named as the npower League 1 Manager of the Month for December.

With four wins and a draw from five December league fixtures, Mark Robins ensured a very merry Christmas for the Sky Blues' supporters.

13 points from a possible 15 is impressive enough but with three victories coming away from home, including two against promotion hopefuls Doncaster Rovers and Milton Keynes Dons, City fans have every reason to look forward to 2013.

Speaking about Robins' win, panel member Alan Curbishley commented: "Mark Robins has really given Coventry fans something to shout about, going unbeaten in December and moving the Sky Blues towards the Play-Off places."

Commenting from npower, Sponsorship Manager Emma Collins added: "Mark Robins really was the stand-out candidate this month.

"Four wins and a draw out of five is a fine achievement on its own, but when you look at the calibre of opponent and amount of away fixtures, you realise it has been a very special spell."
