Alexander's side rediscovered its attacking flair and zest in picking up 13 points from a possible 15 in January, which included a thrilling 4-2 win at fellow promotion chasers Burton Albion, to climb into the automatic promotion places.

Phil Brown (Southend United)
Brown enjoyed a busy month guiding Southend through league and cup commitments. They gained nine points from five unbeaten Sky Bet League 2 games, the highlight being an emphatic 3-0 win over fellow promotion chasers Chesterfield.
