Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month for March.

Jackett rotated his side expertly during a busy month to secure six wins from eight matches.

His side scored 18 goals in the process, going six points clear at the top of Sky Bet League 1.

Dave Bassett, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, said: "Kenny's side showed great consistency throughout March.

"The club played five matches away from home — and an incredible 9,000 travelling fans saw the win at MK Dons."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "Seven wins from eight March games made Kenny Jackett a shoe-in for the Sky Bet League 1 Manager of the Month award.

"Wolves' charge to the top of the table has left them in perfect shape going into the final six weeks of the season and it gives me great pleasure that they look certain to be celebrating automatic promotion soon."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: "Wolves are in a great position after taking 19 points from eight matches.

"The away victories to Sheffield United and MK Dons were important as Kenny Jackett's men look to make an instant return to the Sky Bet Championship."
