Derby County boss Billy Davies has been named as the Championship Manager of the Month for January. Davies also won the award in November, having helped the Rams emerge as leading contenders for promotion to the Premiership. In January, County won all four of their league games, starting with a 2-1 victory at Davies' former club, Preston North End. They went on to see off Sheffield Wednesday, Southend United and Burnley by 1-0 scorelines, while they also enjoyed FA Cup wins over Wrexham and Bristol Rovers to make it through to round five. Derby started February with a 1-0 victory at Southampton to move six points clear at the top of the Championship table.
