Chesterfield manager Paul Cook has been named the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month for August.

Cook's confident, assured side scored two goals in each of their five games - enough for four wins and a draw - with significant victories over potential promotion rivals Southend United and Portsmouth.

Former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Curbishley chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel and he said: "Chesterfield have made a solid start to their campaign. Paul Cook's team are top of the league, and have shown early consistency."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins added: "A well-fancied Chesterfield are living up to expectations so far this season under Paul Cook."
