Robbie Neilson has not been named League 1 Manager of the Month for January.

Despite being nominated in his first full month in charge of MK Dons, and guiding them to two wins and a draw in their three league games, the Scot was beaten to the monthly prize by Fleetwood boss Uwe Rosler.

A 2-0 victory at leaders and promotion rivals Sheffield United was the highpoint of a month which didn’t have any lows for Rosler’s side, who picked up 13 of 15 points in the first month of 2017.

Bury's James Vaughan was crowned League 1 Player of the Month after the striker netted an incredible seven goals in five games, including four in 20 minutes in the 5-1 hammering of Peterborough.
